Minnie Hodges will celebrate her 90th birthday, Dec. 4.
She was born Dec. 4, 1921. Minnie and her late husband, John, farmed in southern Ellsworth County until John’s death in 1975. Minnie worked at El-Kan until shortly before it closed.

One of her many quilts hangs in Presser Hall on the Bethany College campus. Another was the grand champion quilt at the Ellis County Fair. She has hand-quilted numerous tie quilts and wall hangings for family and friends.
A celebration for Minnie’s birthday will be held from 1 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 3 at 804 N. First, Lindsborg. Hosts are Minnie’s daughters, Jennie Straight, Hays, and Shirley Vialpando, Arvada, Colo.
