A century of life celebrated

A host of family and friends gathered to celebrate the 100th birthday of Mrs. Inez Pettyjohn Bramlett, born Oct. 21, 1919, in Cobb County. Still enjoying good health and a vivid memory, she relocated to Rome from Marietta 14 years ago to be near her two children, Rachel Patterson (left) and Rita Murdock. Mrs. Bramlett’s husband, Lamar “Pop B” Bramlett, died in 2001. In addition to her two daughters, Mrs. Bramlett enjoys visiting with five grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
