PERRY HALL - It must be something in the Perry Hall water! Rose Boughter, a Cottages of Perry Hall resident, celebrated her 104th birthday last week.

Born in 1918, Boughter was alive when Woodrow Wilson was still President, a child during the great depression, and 42 years old when Hawaii became a state.

Councilman David Marks went to The Cottages of Perry Hall to celebrate Boughter and her perseverance.

"It was a pleasure celebrating with Rose's family and friends," Marks said. "I was happy to present her with a resolution of birthday wishes from the County Council."

According to Marks, Boughter has lived through 19 total presidents and is one of the oldest living residents of Baltimore County.

"Rose survived the Spanish flu as an infant. She lived in Hampden, where she and her husband operated Davis' Grocery, then she moved to Rosedale. Rose gave birth to four children, and she currently has seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She has lived through 19 Presidents."
