Rudyard Community Celebrates 98-Year-Old Woman’s Birthday

This birthday was like no other for Edna Jacobson, a 98-year-old living in Chippewa County. Rudyard Birthday

She was born and raised in Rudyard, so everybody knows Edna.

On Thursday, a special parade with fire trucks, police cars, friends and family all drove by her house to celebrate.

Family tells us she is the oldest living resident in Rudyard.

Edna sat in her front yard waving at those who honked as they drove by. But she was not expecting the parade.

“My goodness sakes….for me? Oh, I didn’t think anything like that would happen to me,” she laughed. “I just love everybody that’s around here!”

Edna says she still takes walks every day and just takes everything one day at time.
