Wichita woman turns 108 on Saturday

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A Wichita woman will celebrate a major milestone on Saturday.

Nell Hebert will turn 108 years young.

She's a fancy southern lady. So don't be surprised to find her dressed up, with manicured nails and wearing a string of pearls on any given day at the Catholic Care Center.

Nell grew up in Louisiana. She was raised on a farm with 16 brothers and sisters.

Her family purchased their first car when she was 15 years old. Before that, they used a horse and buggy.

Nell's milestone has earned her a lot of attention - including a mention in the newspaper in her hometown and lots of birthday cards - including from a local kindergarten class.

"I didn't know so many people liked me," said Nell.

If you would like to wish Nell a 108th birthday wish, you can birthday cards to the Catholic Care Center in Bel Aire.
