Happy Birthday Trude McFarland
Trude (Hybsa) McFarland was 109 years on July 2. She celebrated her birthday with family, friends and staff at her apartment in Brightondale Assisted Living Campus, New Brighton. Trude has two children; daughter, Joan (Jack) Scovil of St. Anthony Village, and son, Bill (Diane) Hybsa of California, one granddaughter and two great grandchildren in Washington.
Trude is the oldest person in Brightondale and still joins in activities and eats dinner in the dining room. She attributes her longevity to being raised on a farm in southwestern Minnesota, a positive attitude and no medication until she was 103 years old. Trude continues to enjoy each day surrounded by her family and friends, always has a smile on her face and greets the staff and residences in her friendly manner.
