Local Man Celebrates 102nd Birthday


Natural Dam native Mr. Thell Ellison recently celebrated his 102nd birthday with a party attended by family, friends, and his wife of 78 years, Margie. State Representative Charlene Fite was also on hand to celebrate Thell’s amazing milestone. Fite told Ellison it was an honor to attend his party and she’d never known a 102-year-old man. To which Mr. Ellison replied, “And just think: next year you’ll know a man who’s 103!” Charlene says, “This amazing man works in his garden, does woodworking, and teaches Sunday School. He gives glory to God for the blessings in his life.” Ellison’s daughter, Kathy Bailey, describes her father as a role model and a legacy. And everyone who knows him agrees!
