Happy 100th to Ione Garcelon!
Born in Eureka in 1916, she was the youngest of six children. Ione Hanson was raised in the Freshwater area. She married Arthur “Raymond” Garcelon in 1936 and lived much of her life in Fortuna. She was a homemaker who raised two children, Gerald and Janice, in Fortuna.
According to a family friend, until two years ago when the last one passed away, she and her friends who had graduated within a year or so of each other gathered together every month for lunch—every month since 1936. She’s the only one left.
Happy birthday, Ione Garcelon!
