AILEEN FRANK celebrated her 98th birthday with family and friends March 4.

A FORMER local resident celebrated her 98th birthday with family and friends recently.

Aileen Frank had 26 of her family come visit her, including seven of her 10 grandchildren and five of her great-granchildren

“It wasn’t a dinner – rather an afternoon tea with sandwiches, nibblies, cookies, squares, birthday cake and ice cream. We just chatted, took pictures, Mom opened a some gifts and cards.  Mom loves to have her family around and she was just overwhelmed with all her offspring who came to celebrate her birthday,” said her daughter Patricia.

Several people also called her from Mexico, Prince Rupert, Toronto, England, Okanagan and several from Terrace, said Patricia.

She also had many cards from Terrace and has cards all around in her suite as well as several floral bouquets, she added.

She stayed in to have dinner where she lives and the fellow in charge of the dining room made a little cake for her so everyone sang Happy Birthday, said Patricia, adding her mom stood up and waved and thanked everyone.

“I heard one of the staff say – isn’t she so cute – she looks like the Queen waving!  One of the men residents sent us a bottle of wine to have with dinner – how thoughtful of him,” said Patricia.
