Strehlow celebrates 105th birthday
On Thursday, July 18, Charlotte Strehlow celebrated her 105th birthday in her apartment at Bell Tower Residence with family and friends. Many of her cousins stopped in for a visit and to wish her happy birthday. Other family members will be visiting throughout the week. Charlotte attributes her longevity to God’s will and the fact she never smoked or drank. She is very proud of the fact that she comes from a family of eight ministers with her father, grandfather, and uncles. Charlotte’s family moved to the Wausau area when her father became the minister of Grace Lutheran Church more than 90 years. She has been a member ever since.
Charlotte is thankful for her good health at 105 and welcomes each day as a blessing from God.
Bell Tower Residence Assisted Living, a sponsored ministry of the Holy Cross Sisters, has been providing living opportunities to the elderly since 1990.
