Happy Birthday To Paterson's Jennie Tuttle Hobart

PATERSON, N.J. -- Happy birthday to Esther Jane "Jennie" Tuttle Hobart, who was born in and spent most of her life in Paterson. She would have been 167 on Saturday, April 30. She died in 1941, at the ripe old age of 91.

Hobart was married to Garret Hobart, who was vice president to William McKinley, America's 25th president. Her husband died of heart failure before his term was up, but while Hobart was in Washington, she played a prominent role as White House hostess, because First Lady Ida Saxton McKinley suffered from epilepsy.

Hobert returned to Paterson after her husband's death, and she was active in community affairs.
