Hazel (Hart) Stryker celebrated her 90th birthday on Sept. 3. Stryker, born in DeKalb County, has spent most of her life in the Waterman area, except for a few years when she lived in Florida. She worked for DeKalb Ag before marrying Wayne Stryker, who celebrates his birthday in September also.

Wayne Stryker, also born in DeKalb County, will be 85 on Sept. 21. Many remember Hazel and Wayne from the Stryker Egg Factory on Waterman Road, and from their home delivery.

The Strykers now reside at Heritage Woods, 2626 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb. Their family is asking friends to send cards to the couple to share memories and celebrate their birthdays. There will be a private celebration for the couple with their nine children, 15 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
