Happy 90th birthday to Mary Margaret Casey. Mary was born in Iowa on Dec. 9, 1917. Her dad, John Fuchs, was an illegal alien from Germany. Fuchs is German for "fox." John was a baker who had trained for that profession in several countries in Europe. He married Maggie May Bruce in Iowa and the couple had 13 children, including Mary. The Fuchs opened a bakery but had to close it during World War I when people reacted to John's heritage.
