A set of triplets — the first born at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis — celebrated their 85th birthday Aug. 17 at the Woodland Country Club in Carmel.
Triplets Sue Ketelhut of Carmel, Mary Brennan of Anderson and Sally Green of Carmel, got together to celebrate their birthday, something they’ve done for 85 years.
“Growing up, we always got our own cake,” Brennan said.
The siblings still share a sisterly bond. Green and Ketelhut live in the same area at The Barrington, a retirement community in Carmel. They often have lunch together or go to shows at Beef & Boards.
Although the sisters aren’t identical, they look close enough in appearance that people would sometimes confuse them growing up and mix up their names. They joke that there’s no “evil triplet,” and each has their own personality.
They acknowledge it’s impressive that all three have reached the age of 85.
“Must be good genes,” Green said.
