GALION- Galion resident Virginia “Jenny” (Lanter) Clevenger celebrated her 100th birthday on Jan. 5, 2023. Born in 1923 in Harrison County, Kentucky, Jenny was one of 10 children born into a farming family. She went on to marry Garland Clevenger and have six children. She was employed at ITT/North Electric/PECO for many years.
Today, she is blessed with 5 children (son Gary Clevenger passed away in November 2021), 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. She lives independently in Galion where she does housework, loves to shop and spends time with her family.
