Elfrieda Senf celebrated her birthday Nov. 3 as she reached the century mark at 100 years old with an unexpected gift from friends and relatives who left stakes in her lawn, letting the community know it was Elfrieda’s birthday. Elfrieda was born in Okabena, Minn., in 1912 and moved to St. James when she was three or four years old. She and her husband, Victor, farmed in the St. James area until retirement. They had five children and many grandchildren. Happy birthday Elfrieda!
