Los Altos resident Elsie Monson’s lucky number is 100 – she recently celebrated her 100th birthday with more than 100 family members and friends.
Mrs. Monson’s daughter Marilyn Groves and her son-in-law, Tim, hosted the party at their Cupertino home Sept. 27. Out-of-state guests included Mrs. Monson’s daughter, Judy Monson of Carson City, Nev., and granddaughter Cara George and her husband, Darrell, of Scappoose, Ore. Mrs. Monson’s grandson, Major John Principe, is stationed at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and was unable to attend the party. Principe is the father of Mrs. Monson’s first great-grandchild, Teo, born Aug. 22.
