It’s not every day that you see someone live a century but Ms. Clevie Bruin has done just that. She was born in Bracken County, Ky. on May 20, 1913 to Grover and Sally-Francis Flora. She married Harvey Bruin in January 1932 and was married for 62 years.
Harvey and Clevie farmed, fished, hunted, built houses, and worked in the factories in Bracken, Pendleton and Harrison counties.
Upon retirement the couple lived in Falmouth above Houchen’s Shoe Store for 45 years.
Clevie loved to fish; there probably isn’t a body of water that she didn’t catch a fish from in the surrounding counties. Another past time for Clevie was quilting. Many blue ribbon winners were sewn together with love and patience.
Everyone is invited to celebrate and honor Clevie as she reaches the milestone of 100 years on Saturday May 18, 2013 at the home of Steve and JoAnn Greene. The meal will begin at 5 p.m. Please bring a covered dish and lawn chairs. No gifts needed, just your company and a good story to tell!
