Gertrud cuje has lived in many places in her long life. Her 90. She now celebrates her birthday at the hephata old people’s home. Far away from franconia, the cradle of the jubilarian once stood in weibwasser in upper lusatia. Together with her father, a glass blower, the young woman fled from the socialist system.
That’s how she came from what is now the easternmost region of germany to the westernmost city of aachen. In aachen, she pursued her profession as a secretary at a technical college and met her future husband, dominikus.
In 1951, the young people tied the knot for life. Two sons were born. Today, the family also pays for four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Son siegfried came to wiesentheid in lower franconia in 1997 for professional reasons. The mother followed the son and moved to abtswind and later to volkach.
Two years ago, when her son siegfried took on a job as a driver for the day care center at the hephata nursing home, it was an opportunity to bring her mother to aschbach as well. By working for the hephata, mother and son can now see each other often.
Schlusselfeld’s second mayor patricia hanika visited the jubilarian and conveyed the best wishes of the town of schlusselfeld.
