ALBION – Emma Kenyon is 100 years old today. The Albion woman credits her longevity to her faith, and the love from many family and friends.

Kenyon has led an active life, working at Liptons, Kodak, Harrison Radiator Company and Owen’s Glass. She also worked in healthcare.

She is still going strong, her daughter Anne Downey said.

“She enjoys fellowship and socializing,” Downey said. “She has enjoyed her family, knitting and going on camping trips.”

Kenyon has been a widow for 18 years following the death of her husband, Donald Kenyon. She has three children – Anne Downey, and Patricia and Daniel Gormley – as well as two step-sons and five step-daughters, 10 grandchildren and 15 step-grandchildren.

The 1936 Albion graduate is a member of the Oak Orchard Assembly of God Church in Medina. She just moved to The Villages of Orleans Health and Rehabilitation Center in Albion.

“Her faith has been a key for her, and her family has always been around her,” Downey said.

Downey and her family wanted to wish her mother a happy, 100th birthday.
