Suffern Great-Grandmother Featured On Smucker's Jar For 100th Birthday

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!
