Anna Black

Spokane

Anna M. (Wolf) Black, born May 9, 1904, is celebrating her 100th birthday today. She was born in Dickinson, N.D., and has been a resident of Spokane for 40 years.

She met Peter Black at the home of her sister and brother-in-law, who was Peter’s brother. The couple married in 1927. Mr. Black died in 1959.

Mrs. Black has several nieces and nephews.

In her early years living in North Dakota, she worked in sales in a dress shop and won an award as the top salesperson. She also was a homemaker.

She enjoys life and says that being active in her church, golfing, crocheting, reading, playing bridge, watching baseball and traveling have helped her live long and healthy.
