Priscilla Drebin’s family joined her outside of Terra Bella for a birthday lunch in honor of her 90th birthday, Aug. 20.

Drebin, who has resided on Mercer Island for 41 years, lives in Island House. Nancy Meade, owner of Terra Bella, surprised Drebin with a birthday cake and candles.

“I was touched that of all places for her to spend her 90th birthday, our parking lot won out,” Meade said.

Drebin wanted to get lunch from the food truck. On Tuesday, it was Evolution Revolution, which offers a selection of sandwiches, wraps, Mahi Mahi tacos, Ethiopian lentil and rice, tater tot nachos and more.

Seattle-born, Drebin has three daughters and one son; 10 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. Many of her family members reside in Baltimore. Drebin’s mother was born in Seattle in 1892.
