Centenarian: Anna Dewald turns 100

Anna Dewald, a resident of Ponoka long-term care, turned 100 years old on Nov. 14.

Three different parties were held for this lady’s big day, as different family members and friends could come for different ones. Now a centenarian, Dewald received certificates of recognition from the Queen, the federal government, Ponoka County and the Town of Ponoka. Dewald was raised in southern Alberta, moved to Ponoka when she got married, and has lived here for 80 years. Photo submitted
