Celebrating her 100th birthday today is Mary Jeffers Thompson of Switzer. Thompson was born March 21, 1913, in Hamlin, and raised at Four Mile at Branchland. One of 12 children born to James and Josephine Harless Jeffers, she still has one brother living, Desmond Jeffers of Hamlin. Thompson loves to cook, clean house and sit and watch traffic go by her home. She says her favorite foods are “oysters, chicken — and more chicken.”
