Former Poughkeepsie resident Sylvia Becher, who now lives in Suffern, got a sweet surprise for her 100th birthday.
The great-grandmother, born Jan. 10, 1917, was pictured on a Smucker's jar.
It started as a joke five years ago, said grandson Mark Goldstein of Demarest, who recently opened a wellness center at Retro Fitness Hackensack.
"We said, 'Come on, Grandma! We want to see you on a jar," Goldstein said. "'We've got this!'"
With help from a family friend at NBC, the joke became a reality for the family.
Becher, who was born in Russia, has two daughters, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Happy birthday, Sylvia!
