SHALLOTTE — The Great Depression. Two World Wars. Astronauts landing on the moon. A marriage. Children. Grandchildren.
These are but some of the events witnessed by Josephine Chebat of Shallotte, who celebrated her 100th birthday Tuesday, June 14.
Chebat was born in Manhattan, N.Y., and raised in Queens by a Russian father, Joseph Roubo, and a Lithuanian mother, Antonia Roubo, meaning initially English wasn’t her first language.
