Margaret Keyes Hakel is 102 years old, and remembers a lot about the history of the Yakima Valley. She told her friend Ardith Carratt about her childhood memories of her first school in Moxee, Washington, going to Washington State College, and her 102nd birthday celebration, in which she gave advice on how to die.
