Dorothy E. Kuhta turns 100 years old today.

Kuhta was born on April 11, 1915, in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She has lived in Eastern Washington for 20 years and currently makes Brookdale Place at Northpointe her home.

A double centenarian birthday celebration is planned for Tuesday at Brookdale Place for Kuhta and another resident, Margaret F. Ralph Kunkel.

Kuhta met her husband, John, in Kenosha. The couple were married in 1938.

She said her family is her most rewarding life achievement and credits eating good food and exercising with helping her live a long and healthy life.

Kuhta has three children: Robert Kuhta, of Richland; Richard Kuhta, of Toano, Virginia; and Kenneth Kuhta, who is deceased. She has five grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
