Little sister celebrates with her 104, 102 year old sisters


After 100 years, Frances Kompus is still trying to catch up with her big sisters.

Kompus celebrated its 100th anniversary on November 11. Her sisters Julia Kopriva, who turned 104 earlier in November, and Lucy Pochop, who celebrated her 102nd birthday in June, helped celebrate.

Overall, about 50 people joined Kompus for the feast at the Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart in the northwestern town of Kansas. This is the same church in which they grew up, were baptized and confirmed, and where each has married over the years. “Loved it,” Kompus said in an interview recently. “It was a good party.”

Growing up on a farm in Beardsley, Kansas with two older sisters, Kompus has always had company. She remembers sometimes having to “run to follow her sisters” on the three-kilometer walk to school. “I always did what they did,” Kompus said. “Sometimes it worked and sometimes it was fun.”
