I visited yesterday with Berth Cook at the Port Healthcare Center in Newburyport to present her with a Senate Citation in recognition of her centennial birthday. From June 15, 1920, to this very day Bertha has made people smile.
Bertha was always very active in her hometown of Rowley with her husband Lenard. He was the Fire Chief for many years and later served as a Selectman. Jack, their son has also been a civic leader for many years.
