Burgeson celebrating 103rd birthday

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Irma Burgeson will celebrate her 103rd birthday Friday, Jan. 11. This happy-go-lucky centenarian served as a Spencer Hospital and Sioux Valley Memorial Hospital nurse. Burgeson stays young with a daily cocktail at 5 p.m., as well as by basking in the sun and listening to music. Formerly of rural Sutherland and Peterson, she became one of the first residents to move into Riverview Terrace Assisted Living, in Spencer, in April 1999. Burgeson has two children: Richard, of Milford and Mission, Texas, and Janice McDaniel, of Primghar. She also has a younger sister, Mildred "Middy" Deegan, of The Highlands in Spencer. Celebratory birthday wishes may be sent to Burgeson at Riverview Terrace Assisted Living; 1501 St. Luke Drive; Spencer, Iowa 51301.
