Dorene Wendt, who lives in the Villa Park Condominiums in Roseville, celebrated her 106th birthday on May 24. Born in 1908, Wendt was raised on a farm in Nebraska. She married Herbert Wendt in 1933; the couple was married for 55 years at the time of his death in 1986. The senior center hosted a birthday party for her with live piano music, cake and punch, and the large group of friends and family sang “Happy Birthday”—twice.
