Golden Santa

JOHNSTOWN — Almeda (McDaniel) Stetz resides in Jerome, where she was born and raised. She married a boy also from Jerome who passed away in January. “When I was younger, Golden Santa was on my parents’ Christmas tree,” Stetz said. “After my dad died, my mother lived alone and then came to live with me and my family, one street over. Santa came, too. My mother passed away when she was 94, but I still have Santa. I am now 85 and his next home will be with one of my two sons.”
