Happy 100th birthday grandma!


My wonderful grandma Paulina will be 100 on Friday February 11th! She was born in a small village called Triebswetter, in what was then Austria Hungary and is now Romania. She came to the US in the 30's with my grandpa and has lived in the Chicago area since, except for a brief move to Fargo, North Dakota. She has 2 daughters, 5 granddaughters, 7 great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild. She is an amazing woman and we are all blessed to be a part of her family! Happy birthday grandma! We love you!

Grandma Feit.....what can I say except that I love this lady! Grandma Feit, you may not be my actual grandmother, but over the years, I couldn't help but think of you as such. Though I can't speak for my brother Tony and Kevin, I'm pretty sure they feel the same. You are truly amazing and I hope as I grow older, if I can be just half as remarkable as you, I will be very happy! HAPPY 100th Grandma Feit!! SALUTE!!!!!! Betsy
