100 years old, Felma Schrimshire, was chosen on Monday as the 2011 Ms. Alabama Nursing Home Queen. Born and raised in Covington County, AL, Ms. Schrimshire retired in Abdalusia, AL after a busy and well-traveled life. In addition to having journeyed abroad, she has visited every U.S. state. As a young woman, she did a one-year stint in the army and retired in 1976 from a civil service job. A woman of faith and manners, Schrimshire taught Sunday school for 78 years. Among other reasons for winning the pageant, Ms. Schrimshire impressed with her poise and positive outlook on life.

Isn't she a doll? She reminds me a lot of my dear grandmother. But, my grandmother was even prettier.
