Grace Veibell of Cornish celebrated her 99th birthday doing what she loves, having a party at the Pop N Pins bowling alley in Preston.
Grace, a 1932 graduate of Preston High School, has been bowling at the Pop N Pins since before owner Del Ray Talbot purchased the business in 1990. “This has been an annual tradition,” said Talbot. “They have had her birthday party every year since I’ve been here and they were doing it even before then. We have known Grace for a very long time, and we love her.”
Surrounded by children, grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren, Grace enjoyed throwing the first ball down the alley towards the pins.
“My mom loves to bowl,” said daughter Julie Nuckolls of Orem, Utah. “We have given her a bowling party for her birthday for 20 years. She bowled in a league every week and when she couldn’t drive, my dad drove her into Preston.”
