Dorla Schroder is celebrating her upcoming 90th birthday! Dorla J. Schroder was born Aug. 7, 1931, in Clinton. She married the late Norman Schroder on Feb. 17, 1951, in Princeton.

She was a teacher, taught in a one-room country school. Later she was a nurse’s aid and worked in a nursing home and also for the visiting nurses. Dorla had a strong desire to help and assist people to live at home for as long as they could.
