Ginny Scagliarini’s 100th Birthday
Scagliarini was 2 months old when her parents, Ben and Kathryn Meehan Chapman, left Canada and moved to Laurel to raise thoroughbred race horses at Laurel Race Course.
She and her husband, Adolph, met at Fort Meade and married in 1949; they had three children, Jay, Gilda and Toni. Scagliarini lived at their home on the corner of 7th and Carroll Avenue until 2019, when she moved, at the age of 97, to Riderwood Senior Living Community in Silver Spring.
St. Mary of the Mills Church recognized Scagliarini’s 100 years as a parishioner with a Mass on Saturday, Aug. 27.
