A Special Birthday Celebration in Lackawanna County

SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Some big birthday wishes are in order for Catherine Richards.

Catherine celebrated her 101 birthday on Thursday at the Clarks Summit Senior Living Center.

The birthday girl celebrated the big day with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Catherine worked at a bank, was married for 74 years and says she's pretty much seen it all during her long life.

Catherine credits staying active and spending some time in the Florida sun for making it this far.

A very happy birthday to Catherine from all of us here at Newswatch 16.

    God bless her heart! I love hearing about people who lived this long! My grandmother made it to 95, the things they’ve seen and done are absolutely admired and respected!!
