BAKER — Thirteen north Okaloosa County residents, past and present, have joined the ranks of others on the Family Heritage Wall of Honor at Baker Block Museum.

The North Okaloosa Historical Association's May 18 event was the second annual ceremony honoring "unsung individuals of Okaloosa County who have been recognized ... for their positive effect on their family and community; their contribution to the history, formation and continued well-being of our county," the museum's website states.

"They're local, everyday people that made a difference in peoples' lives and the community," museum director Ann Spann said.

Friends or family members nominated honorees. Of 13 inductees, four are still living, including:

•Jeanette Cook, who was instrumental in establishing the Blackman Community Center, volunteer fire department and water system

• Lille Ward Price Fuller, mother of 13, who at 93 still cans her own fruit and vegetables and makes jelly
