Boggs Celebrates 100th

Ruth Marie Boggs

WELLSBURG — A 100th birthday party was held Sunday, Aug. 4 at Scaffidi’s Restaurant in Steubenville for Ruth Marie Boggs of Wellsburg.

Boggs is the mother of Charles “Charlie/Chuck” Boggs and her beloved dog, Buster. She has been a member of the Wellsburg community for over 80 years. She enjoys playing cards and visiting with her many friends and family. Boggs was an avid bowler, woodworker and crafter attending many craft shows in the area. She is best known for never letting a guest go hungry because she loves to bake and cook.

The luncheon was hosted by her family and attended by over 60 family members and friends from as far away as California, Maryland, Southern West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

To celebrate the event the restaurant was decorated with floral vases in blues, greens and pinks with 100 pastel cupcakes arranged in a five-tier tower with a small cake crowning the top. There were three memory picture boards for guests to remember the honoree’s life.

Well wishes may be sent to Ms. Boggs at PO Box 363, Wellsburg, WV 26070.
