“Suppose I didn’t come in?” Gwen Ewell asked rhetorically as Rollings Hills staff gave her a surprise birthday party.
Ewell turned 89 Thursday. She works in the cafeteria at the school a few days a week and is believed to be the oldest person working in the Fairfield-Suisun School District.
A cake and cards greeted her inside the staff lounge. As she read some of the cards, Ewell said, “I want to be 89 again.”
She teared up at one greeting card with cash.
