Longtime Kent resident Cookie Hayes recently celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends.

Born to C.B. and Molly Cook in Kent on Oct. 2, 1917, Hayes raised four children on a farm in Renton. She has outlived three siblings – brothers Arthur and Walter, and sister Phyllis – and two husbands, James Scott and Frank Hayes.

Hayes, who lived in Kent throughout most of her life and lives in Auburn today, has seen all four of her children – Joanne (and Gene Erwin, 2005); Ron (and Annette Scott, 2009); Rodger (and Stella Scott, 2015); and Dick (and Judy Scott, 2017) – celebrate their 50th wedding anniversaries.
