At 110, she’s a star

Vera Van Wagner of Rhinebeck turns 110 on May 24, and they’re planning to throw her a huge birthday party at The Baptist Home at Brookemeade, where she lives.

Vera will become Dutchess County’s first supercentenarian and she may make even more history: The county’s Office on Aging is working to get an official verification that, on her birthday, she will be in the top 80 oldest people in the world.

Vera was also honored May 19 at the county’s Celebration of Aging event in Wappingers Falls, along with more than 17 other county residents who are 100 or older and at least three couples who have been married 70 years or more.
