Reasonover was born July 15, 1910, in Kemp to Catherine Gilchrist McDougald and Charles Edward Reasonover Sr.
She became a teacher, starting out in the Arcadia School near Kemp for one year. For the next 34 years, she taught at Kemp Elementary School.
Included in her entourage of guests was Kemp Mayor Matt Ganssle, along with city councilwoman and high school teacher Barbara McFaul and her husband, Kemp Independent School District board of trustees member Harvey McFaul.
She attributed her long life to her work with children, staying happy and staying active.
The group surprised Reasonover by dropping by at 2 p.m., not only to wish her a happy birthday, but by presenting a plaque commemorating her years as a teacher, the many activities she was involved in throughout the years, and the milestone of turning 100.
The mayor read a proclamation declaring July 15 as “Betty Reasonover Day” in the city.

Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
