Batavia resident turning 100 Sunday

SUBMITTED PHOTO Elinor Rice is looking forward to saying "Hi" to those who can stop by her home this weekend in celebration of her 100th birthday Sunday.

Friends are invited to stop by Saturday or Sunday at her residence, 4085 W. Main Street Rd., Batavia, to say “Hi” and wish her a happy birthday. They may also send her a card.

Elinor, who was born Oct. 4, 1920, grew up on Batavia Elba Townline Road, then was an artist and art teacher in Michigan. Upon retiring she returned back here to live.

“I didn’t want her special birthday to go by unnoticed because of COVID,” said Elinor’s niece, Debbie Fries. “She is a very friendly and outgoing person.

Fries said anyone who stops by is asked to follow social distancing rules, wear a mask and use hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer will be available inside the door. Visitors are asked to refrain from hugs and kisses.

“She’s a very upbeat, special lady. She loves company. Some people have said they are stopping by,” Fries said. “I just wanted it to be in recognition of her birthday and that she made it to 100 and that she’s a special lady.”
