PORTAGE, Wis. (AP) – One Portage Junior Prom attendee will be wearing the same dress her grandmother wore to her own prom over 60 years ago.

The Portage Daily Register reports Betty Dubberstein wore the ivory tiered dress when she was crowned 1954 Prom Queen at Princeton High School.            

Now her granddaughter, Annmarie Dubberstein is wearing it to her prom Saturday.

The 78-year-old Neenah resident says she’s almost as excited as she was in 1954, when she paid $48 for it.

She planned to be on hand Saturday to watch the dress be reborn.

Betty Dubberstein had three sons, so she was never able to pass it down.
