IS CELEBRATING NINETY-FOURTH BIRTHDAY TODAY
MRS. IDA HORST
Four children, 12 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren are helping Mrs. Ida Horst celebrate her 94th birthday anniversary today at her home at 1222 Scott street. The occasion is not only Mrs. Horst's birthday, but is also the 11the anniversary of her little great-granddaughter, Helen Peeters, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Peeters of near Davenport and the 32d wedding anniversary of her daughter, Mrs. Therese Horst, with whom she makes her home. Miss Elsie Koepke, a neighbor, who is having a birthday today, too, is joining in the jolly celebration at the Horst home which makes four anniversaries that are being observed.
The guests which include relatives and a few old friends are spending the afternoon and evening, an elaborate dinner to be served this evening. Bouquets of roses, carnations and daffodils lend an attractive floral touch to the home. This evening there will be music and a general good time.
Mrs. Horst has resided in Davenport since coming to this country when she was 18 years old. She was born in Propstei, Holstein, Germany. Her marriage to Claus Horst took place in Davenport in 1850. Mr. Horst passed away in 1881. Mrs. Horst is in excellent health considering her advanced years and takes as much delight in the day's celebration as any of her grandchildren.
