Embracing Life’s Milestones: Kansas Sisters Celebrate as Youngest Sibling Turns 100
Reveling in Life’s Landmarks: Kansas Sisters Cherish the Journey as Youngest Sibling Reaches 100
Birthdays hold a special place in our hearts, with certain ages marking significant milestones on life’s journey. The thrill of gaining independence by driving alone, casting your vote in local elections, or purchasing items that were once out of reach is truly joyous. Each passing year brings us closer to self-discovery and greater autonomy.
The celebration of these milestones becomes even more delightful when shared with friends and family, as three sisters from Kansas have come to appreciate. On November 11, 2021, Frances Kompus achieved a momentous occasion as she crossed the centennial mark, turning 100 years old. While reaching the remarkable feat of a century is extraordinary on its own, what truly sets her apart is that she is the youngest sibling in her family to reach this milestone.

According to USA Today, Kompus celebrated her 100th birthday with her 104 and 102-year-old sisters at the same place where they shared so many wonderful memories together. Talking about her birthday party, Kompus said, “I loved it. It was a good party.”
The three elderly sisters have also witnessed some historic events over the years, both good and bad, including the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl and the first time they were legally able to vote, according to KSN-TV. One might wonder what the secret is to such a long and prosperous life. Kompus credits having a healthy diet and attitude as her personal reasons. She also encourages others to be social, go on walks and “keep going.”
Kompus, Kopriva and Pochop have always been close, and it’s clear that their relationship has only gotten stronger with each passing year. After they all became widows, they moved into adjoining apartments in Atwood. The sisters are so close that they have even been referred to as The Three Musketeers. Kompus always wanted to do whatever she could to “keep up with her sisters,” whether it was working or it was doing something fun.
“I’m thankful for us girls being together all the time,” Kopriva said.
The sisters had some advice for the future generations, encouraging them to eat well, exercise and thank their elders. While becoming a centennial is a milestone in and of itself, what’s even more remarkable is that the sisters don’t even feel like that much time has gone by.
“I don’t think (any of us) feel that old,” Kopriva said.
