PLAINVIEW, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s most senior citizen is celebrating her birthday with a series of parties. After all, it’s not often someone turns 113.
Only this year did Anna Stoehr move from her farmhouse near Potsdam to an assisted-living home in Plainview. At one party this week, Stoehr celebrated with her children, grandchildren and seven of her 25 great-grandchildren. Her birthday cake was ablaze with all 113 candles.
Her 81-year-old daughter-in-law, Marlene Stoehr, says she was kind of tired after following her mother-in-law around to multiple days of celebrations, which also included a gathering of about 170 people Sunday at a church in Elgin.
Daughter Lois Neighbors tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/1gktWl0 ) her mom remains sharp and loves to play Scrabble, bingo and other games.
