Eleanor Mackenzie Mudge ’38 celebrated her 100th birthday on June 17. After living independently in Lyme, N.H., until she was 97, she moved to the Kendal retirement community in Hanover, N.H., in 2014. She celebrated her 100th birthday with visits from family and friends and many cards.
The picture shows her talking on the phone with her daughter in Colo. Eleanor's seventh great-grandchild was born in Denver on June 15 and is named after her. As she opened cards and presents on her birthday, she jokingly said, “This is so exciting, I can't wait until I’m 200.” She does not know what other members of her class are still living, but she doubts that she will be able to get to her 80th reunion next year.
