December's Vancrest resident spotlight is on Emma Spradlin

The December Vancrest resident spotlight shines on 101-year-old Emma Spradlin, who lived most of her life in Hardin County. Here’s her story:

Emma was born in Kentucky, where attended a  small school until her family moved to Ohio.  

She picked onions at a farm in McGuffey. There she met her future husband, and says the meeting was memorable: he threw an onion at her.
