Lifelong area resident Gladys Hackmann will observe her 100th birthday on Saturday, March 25. Friends, neighbors and relatives are invited to help Gladys celebrate this very special milestone by showering her with birthday wishes.
A teacher until she married in 1940, Gladys and her late husband, Hugo, became the parents of three children, Rachel, Mark and Stanley.
Hugo died in 2008, but Gladys continued to live on her farm east of West Union until recently, when she moved to Maple Crest Manor.
Birthday cards and notes can be sent to Gladys at Maple Crest Manor, 100 Bolger Drive, Fayette, IA 52142.
