These days, people are living longer than ever before, but what’s the secret? Agatha Breuer celebrated her 105th birthday on July 24, so it’s safe to say she’s in on it.
“It was a tremendous party,” exclaimed Agatha, a smile stretching across her face. When asked what her favorite part of the event was, she said, “Oh, just being there and seeing everybody.”
For 105, she said she still loves music, dancing, going to church and playing cards. “I play dirty clubs,” she stated, noting that euchre is another favorite.
As for her taste in music, Agatha loves country and polka. In fact, every year for 35 years, Agatha has made a special trip to Huckleberry’s Restaurant to see the Toe Tappers, one of her favorite local groups. These trips were first made special because she spent them with her late-husband, Fred.
