Last weekend, Roe Kirkland celebrated her 100th birthday and the 100th anniversary of women's right to vote by marking her mail-in-ballot.
Kirkland has voted in every federal election beginning with F.D. Roosevelt, and urged everybody to vote, her family said.
An Iowa native, Kirkland moved to Arkansas to live with her daughter and son-in-law, Sue and Stuart Rogers of rural Malvern.
"In spite of the pandemic, she enjoyed her birthday with her favorite food, a card shower and a 'virtual' family reunion at the computer," family members said.
She has two grandsons and five great-grandchildren. When asked about her secret for longevity, she said, "I have always tried to be content." She enjoys each day by reading The Sentinel-Record, exercising, typing letters, working crossword puzzles, watching movies and cheering for her adopted Razorbacks.
