Masoner celebrates 102nd birthday

     Ruth Masoner was born in the little town of Hydro, Okla. on Sept. 9, 1912. As the9-11-14-ruth-masoner-102 third daughter in a large family of six children, she was not a stranger to rough times. (There was a seventh child, a boy, who passed away right after he was born.)
