Burneice J. Doose is celebrating her 89th birthday on Saturday, Feb. 26.

She is the matriarch of the Doose family, sixth-generation natives of New Castle. She has three children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

She taught elementary school for 26 years, including schools in Cardiff, New Castle and Glenwood Springs.

Burneice has traveled to her ancestral Scotland twice, to New Zealand and Australia, and continues to travel to Mexico at least once a year. She is looking forward to seeing many of her extended relatives as the family gathers in New Castle this summer for a family reunion.

She will celebrate her birthday with a small family party.
