Open house for Bell's 95th birthday

Rosalie (Metcalf) Bell of Wyanet will celebrate her 95th birthday on Feb. 9.

She was born Feb. 9, 1919, in Athertonville, Ky., and lived in LaRue County several years before moving to Illinois.

She retired from Harper-Wyman in Princeton and also worked at Hollywood Vasserette and Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton.

In the late 1950s, Rosalie and her former husband, the late Donald Bell, managed the Blue Ribbon Luncheonette located in the Hodgenville square beneath the Masonic Temple across from the statue of Abe Lincoln.

Rosalie is the mother of the late Tom Bell of Buda, June Hosier of Colonial Heights, Va., Louise DeVries of Merced, Calif., Beverly Moore of Kewanee and Janice Bulthuis of Wyanet, and the stepmother of the late Donna (Bell) Wood of Campbellsville, Ky. She is blessed with many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

An open house to celebrate her special day will be held on her birthday at her home.
