An appearance by Santa Claus and characters from the Abbotsford Christmas parade highlighted Ned Sterling’s 89th birthday party Monday evening at Continental Manor in Abbotsford. The party was given by two of his daughters, Mrs. Ernest (Nila) Buss and Mrs. Ernest (Marge) Schade, both of Abbotsford.

Mr. and Mrs. Emil Daellenbach played Christmas carols and Santa distributed over 80 bags of goodies as Disney characters, led by Miss Elsie Bremer, greeted the residents.

Sterling, who operated a farm in the Town of Holton most of his life, has lived at Continental Manor the past two year. Previously he was engaged in carpenter work in the Abbotsford area.

He was married to the former Elizabeth Brown, who died in 1970. The couple had six children: Melvin, killed in action during World War II, Lester, Woodburn, Oregon, Lucille, Ottumwa, Iowa, Evenly, Chicago, and Marge and Nila of Abbotsford. He has fifteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
