Morinville – There was plenty of cake to go around at Aspen House Monday afternoon as Thalia Fiscbach was recognized on her 100th birthday.
To honour the occasion, Fischbach was presented with a cake, balloons and presents from the town of Morinville on behalf of the community she now calls home.
Born May 30, 1911, Thalia has become a celebrity in the town that shares her birthday year. The centennial citizen has been a guest of honour at Morinville’s Family Day Celebrations and Royal Canadian Legion’s Seniors’ Luncheon, both held in February.
On both occasions as well as Monday’s birthday, Fischbach has a little taste of icing before cutting the cake.
Thalia has shared the celebrity stage this year with Morinville’s Centennial Baby, Jayden Wood who was born Jan. 2. Thalia recently knitted a sweater for her fellow centennial honouree.
Fischbach moved to Morinville from Bon Accord nine months ago and is well-regarded at Aspen House for her sharp wit and penchant for keeping her fellow residents on their diets as well as on their toes.
Aspen House recently celebrated another birthday milestone when Ms. Dora Nadon turned 103 May 11.
