VALPARAISO | Mrs. Zora Nance was born in Gary, IN on May 4, 1912. She lived during the depression where she grew up on a diet of lots of pancakes and cabbage soup. She had two sisters & two brothers who all lived well into their 90's. Her favorite colors are purple and powder blue and favorite song is, Jesus Loves Me. When asked if there was a reason for her good health all of these years, she believes it’s due to a regimen of vitamins and cod liver oil. One of her favorite hobbies is baking and continues to do so to this day. Her family and friends say that one of their favorite items she bakes is her home made muffins.

Mrs. Nance is a long time member of the Bethel Baptist Church at 206 Wayne St., Valparaiso IN. On Sunday, May 4th at 7pm she will be celebrating her birthday at the Church along with family and friends.

Papa John’s, 123 Lincolnway, Valparaiso, IN will help Mrs. Nance celebrate this monumental birthday with Pizza! We have been told her favorite pizza is the Works with no Pepperoni. Papa John’s will recognize her birthday with three special pizzas along with many other pizzas to feed family and friends during her birthday celebration. The Valparaiso Papa John’s team will also present Mrs. Nance with a very special gift.

Please join us in wishing Mrs. Zora Nance a very happy 102nd Birthday.
