Wellsburg woman celebrates 101st birthday


A special birthday Monday for one eastern Iowa woman, Monday. Alice Ruter of Wellsburg turned 101, but she isn't the only long living family member.

"My sister Emma is 104 years old and she is in a nursing home in Ackley, but she is here this afternoon to help me celebrate the birthday," says 101-year-old Ruter.

Emma keeps busy with quilting and Alice keeps her mind sharp by playing crosswords, sudoku, and scrapbooking. Their nieces and Emma's daughter got together at Alice's house to celebrate their long years together.

Both women are in great health and say they are grateful to spend time with their family.
