Sara McNany Celebrates 100 Years

Sara McNany

Mrs. Sara McNany was born on September 2, 1914 in Scrubgrass Township, PA and celebrated her 100th birthday. Sara is the daughter of the late Arthur and Anna Milford of Six Points and one of seven children. Sara and her brother, Bill Milford are the remaining members of her immediate family.
Growing up, she attended the Byron Center Elementary school and then Emlenton High School, graduating in May 1934. Sara married the late Charles McNany on December 21, 1934 and they spent 70 wonderful years together.
They were blessed with 5 children: Shirley, Russell, Harold, Paul, and the late Charles Ellis and also fortunate to have 14 grandchildren, 28 great grandchildren, and 10 great great grandchildren.
Sara devoted her time taking care of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and was the Director of the Scrubgrass Senior Center. She also enjoyed embroidery, sewing, and baking, but her greatest love was quilting and listening to the Pittsburgh Pirates play ball.
She made a quilt for each child, grandchild and great-grandchild and many others.
She also enjoyed bowling and watching the Professional Bowlers Association.
Sara is the oldest living member of the Scrubgrass Stone Church, where she was a Deacon and Treasurer; been a member of the Women’s Missionary Society; Sunday School teacher; Thursday Quilters; Bible School teacher and assisted with many church functions. She was a PTO president and member of the Emlenton Civic Club and the Scrubgrass Grange. She was also the Secretary for the Scrubgrass Presbyterian Cemetery Association (Scrubgrass Stone Church Cemetery) for many many years. She submitted extensive information and records to help create the book, “History of the Scrubgrass Stone Church”. The book has been a great
source of information for our local cemetery. She resided at her Emlenton area home until January of this year, when she made the transition to Orchard Manor in Grove City, PA, where she has made new friends.
Sara and her family celebrated her 100th Birthday on August 31, 2014 at the Scrubgrass Stone Church.
Pastor Denny Barger led the church in worship paying tribute to Sara. The service was followed by a luncheon hosted by her family.
