Grandma Le Sueur celebrates her 106th birthday on Thanksgiving

LE SUEUR, Minn. – There is a double blessing this Thanksgiving in Le Sueur: a family gathering and Grandma’s 106th birthday party.

Betty Majusiak spent her birthday enjoying cake and company with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

It’s true that age is just a number, but Majiusek was born before the United States entered World War I. On her special Thanksgiving birthday, she doesn’t remember the smell of her mother’s turkey growing up on the farm.

“Cows lie down when they’re tired and full of water. They sleep and snore and fart and stuff and the smell is always something from cows and horses,” Majiusek said.



At least Thursday, the room was filled with flowers, as were generations of her family. In total, she has nine great-grandchildren.

“I can’t believe they’re my blood but I’m so proud of them all,” she said. “The children are so cute and so good to her.”

As for Majiusek’s wishes, she says it’s not for her, but for her family.

“I wish the whole family could be together whenever possible because you can learn a lot from those close to you,” she said.

As if turning 106 wasn’t great enough, at 95, Majiusek was diagnosed with colon cancer and had to undergo major surgery.
