Dorothy “Dot” Banta Masters turned 100 years old on October 22. Her friends helped her celebrate at the Lexington Senior Center. Dot loves to play cards, especially Bid Euchre and Bridge. She plays cards at least 3 days a week.

Dorothy Louise Banta was born October 22, 1919 in Millersburg, Bourbon County, Kentucky. In her 100 years, she has been through The Great Depression, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and a tragic auto accident.

Dot and her husband, O’Neil Masters owned and operated a gas station in
the 70s located on Versailles Road at Parker’s Mill Road. It was known for the banana grove next to the station. Dot has one grandson, Travis McConathy and one great-granddaughter, Abigail Rose McConathy.

Friends say Dot always has a smile and will always keep you on your toes when playing cards. She loves watching all sports — especially UK Basketball and the Cincinnati Reds.
