Milestone Birthday Celebration for a Woman in Wayne County

PAUPACK TOWNSHIP — A very happy 100th birthday to a woman from Wayne County.

Neighbors celebrated the milestone along Lake Wallenpaupack Saturday night with Hilda Weidhouse. She will turn 100 in a few days.

The Sandy Shore Development where she lives holds a pot luck dinner on the shore and decided to surprise her for her birthday. Family showed up to celebrate with Weidhouse.

She said things are a bit different now than when she lived on a farm and had to wake up early.

“The only thing is you don’t have to get up at a certain time. That’s nice. Haha! I feel guilty about it after,” Weidhouse said.

Weidhouse came to the United States from Germany when she was 10 years old.

    Nice article, BUT, you misspelled Hilda’s last name. It is WEIDHAAS, not Weidhouse.

    She is my sisters mother in law and I have known
    Hilda since 1965.

    Please issue a correction for this good woman’s name.

    A Very Happy Birthday to you Hilda.
    100 years. So many things have evolved during your life. I can just imagine all the wonderful stories you’d have to tell.
    God Bless you.
