Bon Anniversaire! Margaret Stevens Celebrates Century Mark
By Charles Chandler
Je te souhaite plein de bonheur en cette journée spéciale. – Wishing you all the happiness on your special day.
Saturday September 3, 2016 was a very special day for White Cloud and one of our favorite residents. On a perfect blue sky infused Michigan day we all gathered at the local Seventh Day Baptist Church to help Mrs. Margaret Stevens celebrate her 100 birthday.
Mrs. Stevens was a French teacher at White Cloud School and...
...taught many students about the French culture, how to conjugate those troublesome verbs and to speak a beautiful language. For many years she lived in that attractive White House on the corner of Morgan and Webster Street and has recently moves to Green Acres in Fremont.
Mrs. Stevens took the place of honor as we all gathered outside under the shade trees and tents enjoying refreshments as each waited their turn to offer congratulations and get a pat or a special hug. Her Granddaughter Wendy from Boise, Idaho was on hand to keep the soirée in order and moving along. The two were a delightful generational contrast with Mrs. Stevens impeccable dressed wearing a small gold party tiara and Wendy with just a touch of fashion pink in her hair.
Mrs. Stevens was always the student as well as the teacher and had over the years assembled a sizable personal library. When she had moved to Green Acres she gifted her collections to good friend and book lover Mrs. Norma Rudert. Norma in turn brought all those books to the bash and encouraged all attendees to could take a volume or two in remembrance of Mrs. Stevens and her special day.
Mrs. Stevens was my neighbor, Margaret to many, Madam to her students and a role model for us all.
Je vous souhaite beaucoup d'autres, Mme Stevens-I wish you many more)
