Celebrating 100 years of life, 89 years at McConnell Memorial


Nannie Rose Tathum recently celebrated two memorable milestones – turning 100 years old and 89 years as a member of McConnell Memorial Baptist Church in Hiawassee. In addition to holding an obvious record for the church’s membership longevity, Tathum was also visited at her home on April 24 by U.S. Congressman Doug Collins, who presented her with a United States flag that had flown over the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. McConnell Memorial has honored Tathum’s longtime support of missions by naming primary WMU the Nannie Rose Tathum Missions Group.
