FORT ATKINSON -- Nothing says happy 94th birthday like jumping 10,000 feet out of a plane, in the eyes of 94-year-old Ella Wakerhauser.
"I thought well, if I am going to die, I am going to die doing and I thought, well, that's okay. I am 93 years old," Wakerhauser said in an interview with NBC 15 .
Wakerhauser grew up in the Great Depression, raised four children and was married for 50 years. Unfortunately, her husband has passed away from cancer, but that hasn't stopped this 94-year-old from enjoying life to the fullest.
Her son Dan Kurtz said that his mom is "more full of life now than she has been in a lot of years."
"I wasn't a bit scared... maybe it's because I am old... laughs," Wakerhauser said.
