Dorothy Barker passes the century mark

Dorothy Barker, a long-time resident of Chilmark and Aquinnah who now lives at Windemere, turned 100 on December 15, 2010.

Her daughters Judith and Karen and their husbands, granddaughter Tarah, and great granddaughter Eliza helped to celebrate the milestone with a festive party that featured Dorothy’s favorites — dark chocolate, coffee, and cake.

She received several phone calls from grandchildren far and wide and a special one from her brother, Brandon Wight, the long-time owner of the Red Barn Gallery who now resides in Gainesville, Florida.

It was a lovely party, enjoyed by all. The family looks forward to summertime when there will be many more special visits.
