Ruth Bakke - 90 years

The family of Ruth Bakke of Burlington invites her friends and extended family to a 90th birthday celebration on Saturday, March 15th. The “no gift” party will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. at Hillcrest Park Lodge in Mount Vernon.

Ruth and her husband Aadne owned and operated several local restaurants during the 1960s and 1970s, including Bakke’s Café, the Freedon Inn, and the Nordic Inn. Following that, Ruth had a successful 30-year career in local real estate until her retirement last year.
