Elementary school kids celebrate local woman’s 85th birthday

Maxine Tibbits, 85, has been greeting her grandchildren at their bus stop for the past 30 years.

Recently, her youngest grandchild graduated elementary school, leaving Tibbits with no one to pick up. Rather than stay home, Tibbits still greets children at the same bus stop before they get on the bus.

In celebration of her 85th birthday, some of those kids from Mineral Point School District sang to her and gave her hugs and flowers.
