Hinterlong Living was a hive of activity October 8 as friends, family, staff, and residents celebrated Thelma Augustin’s 105th birthday. The large turnout fulfilled her one birthday wish.
“I’ve got such a good life right now, I really don’t have anything more to wish for. I would like for my family to visit me on the day of my birthday,” Thelma said.
A resident of Hinterlong Living for just over one year, Thelma spent her first 104 in Adams County. She grew up in the Juniata area and moved to a farm just down the road after getting married. Although she says the secret to her long life is “the dear Lord”, her daughter-in-law Charla Augustin of Axtell believes there is a little more to it.
