Bay resident celebrates 100th birthday
Evelyn Ballantine celebrated her 100th birthday one day early, on Oct. 24, at Bradley Bay Assisted Living, where she is a resident. Evelyn is a native Clevelander, and she and her late husband moved to Bay Village in 1950.
She and Thomas were married for 63 years, during which, in addition to being a homemaker, she worked at the Cleveland Club and Union Commerce Bank. She has one son, Tom, four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Her birthday was celebrated with family and friends during a delicious lunch, while being serenaded by the South Shore Four Quartet. Bay Village Mayor Debbie Sutherland presented Evelyn with a proclamation for her centenarian status.
