To The Herald-Whig:

I want to thank everyone who came to my 90th birthday party Saturday, July 26. It was great to see so many friends and families.

I thank everyone for all the cards I got in the mail and for all the gifts and cards at the party.

It was a day I'll never forget. It was a wonderful party.

I want to especially thank my children, Dee and husband, Vernon O'Brien, sons, Dale Grawe and Paul and Rita Grawe and families. Thank you again kids.
