Virginia Rothline of Woodland is the newest member of the Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada’s Century Circle, after she turned 100 years old on Feb. 27.

“Our centenarians have first-hand knowledge and experience in the changing landscape of the Golden State and many have helped to shape the California we know today,” Yamada said in a news release. “As they achieve the special status of centenarian, we owe our respect to people like Ms. Rothline, who dedicated three decades to ensuring mail deliveries to the residents of Woodland.”

Rothline was born Feb. 27, 1914, in Hanford and graduated from Hanford Joint Union High School in 1930. Afterward, she moved to San Francisco to attend a business college. In 1935, she married her husband, Dutch Rothline. The Rothlines moved to Woodland in 1946, where Virginia served as a mail carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, retiring in 1979.

Virginia and Dutch had two daughters, Barbara Bodkin of Woodland and Patricia Cutts of Michigan; four grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, knitting, crocheting and spending time with her family.

Yamada created the Century Circle in 2010 to identify centenarians throughout her Assembly District. If you or a loved one would like to participate, contact her district office at 530-662-7867 or email assemblymember.yamada@assembly.ca.gov with the name, contact and birthday month for the celebrant.
