Odessa Smith celebrated her 100th birthday July 4. To celebrate, Blooming Grove made her the Grand Marshal of the 4th of July Parade.
Her Great-Grandson, Zack Mahoney, drove Odessa in the parade. Odessa has lived in Blooming Grove most of her life and has been an attending member of the Central Baptist Church for almost 90 years.
Her family says she is an inspiring woman and everyone who knows her loves her deeply.
