The city of Stephenville honored Joyce Whitis Friday as she turned 90 years old. Mayor Doug Svien read a proclamation recognizing Whitis for her longtime support of the dairy industry, help with establishing the Erath County Humane Society, her longtime column, Patchwork, that ran for many years in the Stephenville Empire-Tribune, and her acting as Erath County’s “number one cheerleader and tourism ambassador for the Cowboy Capital of the World.”
