The youngest of the group of century celebrators is Gladys Uible, born June 22, 1892 in Hillsboro.

At the time of her birth the nation's historical accounts include steelworker strikes in Homestead, Penn. and the introduction of the first gasoline powered American automobile, built in Chicopee, Mass.

Uible spent her years as a homemaker, raising two children, Harold Uible and Mary Uible Horton.

According to her son, his mother never got mad – but she always knew when to say 'no.'
