Vandalia Woman Celebrates 88 By Skydiving

Mildred Cole celebrating her 88th birthday Sunday

A Vandalia woman recently celebrated her 88th birthday in a memorable way – by skydiving at the Greenville Airport.

Mildred Cole and her son each took a tandem jump on May 15th with staff from the Gateway Skydiving Center in Greenville. Family told us that Mildred loved the experience and wasn’t nervous at all. She said the jump initially took her breath away, but she had a wonderful time.

A representative of Gateway Skydiving Center told WGEL that Mildred was “an amazing lady” who did a great job and that it was a pleasure working with her.

Family says Mildred is already working on how to celebrate her 89th birthday.
