The family of Mary Beck would be honored if you could help us celebrate her 90th birthday on Feb. 24 by showering her with a card or letter. Greetings will reach her at 619 Elm Ave., Apt 308, Story City, IA 50248. Mary is fondly known for her Danish rolls, card playing, and driving the ladies around town — but mostly for her “gift to gab.” Some of her favorite talking points would be stories about her 12 children, 33 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, many special in-laws as well as her late husband, John.
