Ancelia (Shiela) Marinoni Marchino was born on Sept. 17, 1911 in Rovetta, Italy. When she was 8 years old, she along with her mother and two younger brothers immigrated to America to rejoin their father. He was a rock mason and had come to America five years earlier to work in his trade. They settled in Idaho and lived in Lava Hot Springs and later developed a farm in Arimo, Idaho. After the depression and the loss of the farm the family moved to Carbon County in 1930 to find work in the coal mines.

In 1933 she married Mario Marchino, had three children Louise, John and Jerry. Ancelia has been a mother, housewife, and also helped her husband in operating both a service station in Carbonville and motel in Price. Upon their retirement she and her husband went on several trips touring both the US and Canada.

After her husband passed away in 1996, she and her sister Aurelia, who died in 2007, spent time together and had many memorable outings on their favorite trips to Wendover, Mesquite and Laughlin, Nev. Although she hasn't been able to make a trip lately, the "penny slots" in Wendover are still her most enjoyable activity. As she turns 100 her brother John Marinoni is trying to keep pace with her as he will be 99 years old in December.

As an interesting fact she has voted in every presidential election since 1932.

To help celebrate the 100th birthday you are welcome to an open house Sept. 18 at the Notre Dame Hope Center, 200 North Carbon Avenue in Price from 2-5 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. No gifts please.
