Ruby Gilbert Celebrates 100th Birthday

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)__ One special lady got to celebrate a very special day that not everyone gets to experience.

Ruby Gilbert celebrated her 100th birthday Sunday with friends and family at the Crestview United Methodist Church. The room was packed with happy guests as everyone stood in line to wish Ruby a happy birthday.

Even though some of her family were not able to be there for the celebration, it did not stop her grandson from having them readily available on Skype via his smart phone.

Everyone in attendance sat around the tables sharing stories about how good of a bridge player Ruby is. One granddaughter even shared the fact that Ruby still has a part time job and drives. She thought that fact was amazing about her grandmother.

Everyone at WIBW wishes Ruby Gilbert a happy birthday and thanks her for letting us be a part of her special day.
