Ms. Missouri Nursing Home contestant hits century mark

At the 2018 Ms. Missouri Nursing Home Queen contest, Vera Beamer, a resident at Linden Woods Village, takes second runner-up. Her 100th birthday was in January 2019, but a snow storm prevented family from celebrating. 

Vera Beamer marked her 100th birthday Jan. 18, 2019. However, a snowstorm prevented any parties. Now friends and family are uniting for a 100th birthday celebration from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at Highlands Community of Christ, 7615 N. Platte Purchase Drive.
