83-year Old Great-Grandmother Headin…

Patricia Siebenaler has seen much change in the world during the course of her 83 years. World War II is still a vivid memory, when she and her friends quit school early to work full time at a factory in 1944 to help with the war effort. She married her husband Doyle Siebenaler, a WWII veteran and machinist, in 1947. Their first home and three children followed in the 1950s. Doyle died of a massive heart attack in 1967. Patricia never remarried, working full time at a small insurance office to ensure her kids had what they needed. She continued working long after the man who had originally hired her had retired, then she outlasted the man who had replaced him, finally buying the business herself in 1989 shortly before her 63rd birthday . When most people her age were preparing for retirement, Patricia was, as she puts it, “just getting started!” In 1998 she sold the business for a nice profit, and then decided to devote her time to her grandkids and helping those in the community in need of a helping hand. Two years ago, she became a great grandmother, with a second great grandchild due to arrive in just a few more months. In 2008, Patricia became a strong supporter of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, spending two hours every day placing Obama flyers throughout her neighborhood and working the phone bank on Tuesday evenings at her local Democratic Party office. Having taken her children to watch Martin Luther King give a speech back in 1966, and then to watch another dynamic Black American poised to become President of the United States 42 years later was a moment both profound and emotional for Patricia.

“I can remember so well standing with my kids as we listened Se archByDe gre e .com /Colle ge Grants to Dr. King all those years ago, and then I was blessed to take my grandkids to hear President Obama talk to us in 2008. It was so wonderful to be able to share that with them. And it meant so much to help Obama become president in whatever small way I could.”

Does Siebenaler even watch Comedy Central? “Oh yes! Jon Stewart and that other fella, I really enjoy the humor. My husband loved to laugh, he would have gotten a kick out of Jon Stewart. He is such a smart young man. And I really do believe the country needs to get back some sanity these days. It’s just gotten so angry and bitter and everyone is trying to tear everyone else down. It’s just terrible how they do that to each other.” And who does she feel to be the worst at trying to tear other people down? “That Sarah Palin, the governor, or she used to be governor…she is just plain awful. She points and points and points at everyone but herself. She has never given the president one day of chance to try and do the right thing. Everything he does, anything he does, that Palin will blast him for it. That Sarah Palin is just crazy!” When asked what the young people can do to support President Obama, Patricia gives a wide smile, puts her hand up into a peace sign, and exclaims, “Rock the vote!” At 83 years young, Patricia Siebenaler gives no indication of slowing down. Let’s see if all the younger folks at the Rally to Restore Sanity can keep up…

Surely a great woman who fought Despite suffering a very bad time She is an example for all women In a way for humanity in general World goes for money, power and fame In that process it loses peace of mind So I deeply admire this g(old) lady May her efforts rejuvenate all minds. 2. Brett Bennett On October 24, 2010 at 2:56 pm

This is a wonderful article! She seems like a wonderful person. It’s great she is still interested in politics and improving the world even at her age! 3. ShiningStar On October 24, 2010 at 5:15 pm

well written 4. Dark Doink On October 24, 2010 at 10:21 pm

Very well written article, however this woman’s political views make me sick. Just because someone is 83 years old doesn’t mean they have all the right answers and it surely doesn’t mean they make the all the right choices i.e. President of the United States. 5. sohbetci On October 25, 2010 at 2:32 am

Great article. It is inspiring to read of women of her age who are still active and participating in life! 7. numismatic On October 26, 2010 at 3:56 am

Good stuff keep up the good work. 8. Jen B On October 26, 2010 at 9:47 am

Amazing! I love how she has so much energy and determination! 9. hfj On October 26, 2010 at 9:48 am

Great story about a remarkable women. You have to admire someone who picks up the pieces of their life and move forward, instead of rolling around in their sorrows. She is a roll model for women of our time.Well done. 10. suzieqsw On October 26, 2010 at 11:06 am

To Dark Doink: Just like an uninformed jerk to bash someone because they don’t think the same way you do. She’s probably got more intelligence in her little finger than you do in your entire head.

Get a life. This was an awesome article, and she’s right Sarah Palin is awful, if she really made any sense, she wouldn’t be a tea party sweetheart. 11. 749841692369 On October 26, 2010 at 11:53 am

Nice article! Old lady like that may have some wisdom but not all of the answers because young people comprehend just as much as old people because the knowledge learning process I believe is faster these days than 50 years ago. Good article! 12. EricPinola On October 27, 2010 at 5:21 pm

Why does everyone bring up MLK when they speak of Ovomit? MLK would have ripped Obummers A$$ on supporting the killing of MILLIONS of BLACK babies through abortion and the enslavement of the mothers through the sin of murder. Don’t think so??????? Does ANY member of MLK’s family support Obomunist? Hell NO! They are some of the strongest people fighting this little man that wants to take power from every corner he can. Makes me SICK. We will vote him out or this country will see another revaluation. This story is about an old Lib-Tard that is ignorant of real policies; just gets her education from the TV. Bravo. Eric Pinola 13.

To suzieqsw: Thank you for showing me the light. You are so right. I was so wrong. You are so much smarter than I. I think you and Ms. Patricia both have more intelligence in two of your nose hairs than I could ever dream of having. You make soooo much sense. I’m just so flustered now. I think I’m going to go vote for Barack Obama now. I’ve realized the errors of my ways. And “that Sarah Palin is just crazy.” Go write a poem. Wait, forget that. Do us all a favor and don’t write anymore poems. 14. Sandy McCollum On October 29, 2010 at 12:46 am

Eric, be more careful, your assinine is showing. “MLK would have ripped Obummers A$$ on supporting the killing of MILLIONS of BLACK babies through abortion and the enslavement of the mothers through the sin of murder.” So, only millions of black babies are aborted and only black mothers die – enslaved – through murder? Enslaved through murder… the impression is the opposite of what you’re aiming for. You’re just one of those people who has to find something to pick out and argue about. Only this time you sounded really dumb. Sorry, just sayin’. 15. Sandy McCollum On October 29, 2010 at 12:48 am

As for the article, I think it’s great she is so active and happy at that age. The article was well written and entertaining, too. 16. fishfry aka Elizabeth Figueroa On October 30, 2010 at 2:35 am

The article is great, bless her that at 83 she could be so active; as for her political view…….can’t go there! 17. Pete Pivo On October 31, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Wow, an 83 year old dupe fooled by the Jon Stewart propaganda comedy show sprinkled with audience laughter & applause. There is no difference between Beck & Stewart both apologize for the plutocrats and spew fascist corporate pornography. 18. Rod Ferrandino On November 1, 2010 at 12:17 pm

so much venom, so little logic. More power to any octogenarian who is out rocking the vote. 19. C Luina On November 1, 2010 at 2:49 pm

interesting 20. SimplyShash On November 1, 2010 at 3:09 pm

Super! That again proves commitment has no age barriers. Wonderfully written too. SimplyShash Know Yoga, know life! http://relijournal.com/religion/yoga-fitness-matching-who-fitness-standards-since-centuries/

I went to the rally, it was really fun. 23. Cathie On November 5, 2010 at 1:38 pm

Ummm…I don’t think she’s that bright if she voted for Barry Sotero. That vote was based mainly on emotional shivers that this man managed to impart to people. His less than stellar two years in the White House has proven that he was all hype and no substance. And with the recent election, the people essentially voted against him. Besides which, did you see the pictures of the “aftermath” of those who attended the restore sanity rally? Horrible! The people who scream the loudest about “social justice” & the greening of America left the hugest mess on the ground for others to pick up! I guess they were thinking this was just another way the government should take care of them & relieve them of any personal responsibility. Post Comment
