Friends and family members are invited to celebrate Gwendolyn Hallenbeck's 90th birthday at Zack's BBQ, 721 E. Bridge Street, Hotchkiss. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20.

Gwen was born on the Cribb Leitzinger Centennial Farm on Rogers Mesa, where she makes her home. Her maternal grandparents, the Cribbs, settled in Delta County in 1898. They had one child, Lettie, who married Joe Leitzinger. Lettie and Joe also had one child, Gwen.

After her marriage to Charles Hallenbeck in 1951, Gwen moved from western Colorado. The Hallenbecks lived in Boulder for 25 years, where Charles was employed as a professor at the University of Colorado. They returned to Delta County, and to the family farm/orchard, in 1979.

Gwen has two children, Joe Hallenbeck of Fort Collins and Amy Hauptman of Boulder; four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Charles died in 2011.
