STEARNS, Ky. (WTVQ) – A woman in Stearns is about to become a centenarian but won’t be able to celebrate her birthday with a traditional party.
Lola Smith turns 100 years old on Monday, May 11. Her daughter Rose Griffis said because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they won’t be able to celebrate the momentous occasion in the way they hoped.
Thursday, Griffis posted on Facebook they wanted to protect Smith, “We had plans for a big birthday celebration planned for her but instead we will be sharing her celebration with her 10 children n grandchildren.”
But Griffis didn’t give up. Instead, she took to Facebook for help, “Many have inquired about sending my sweet Momma a birthday card and she would love that.”
Griffis said cards can be sent to the following address:
