Country Villa Resident Turns 100

Media

BANGOR - Sadie Danforth celebrated her 100th birthday Tuesday, surrounded by family and friends.

Although she's battled sickness in the past, Danforth is one of the most lively residents at The Country Villa in Bangor.

 

"Most people to see her wouldn't know she was a hundred years old. She never acted 100 years old. She's always on the go," explains Loretta Rines, one of the housekeepers at The Country Villa.

 

Coca-Cola is one of Danforth's favorites, with a representative stopping by with a birthday gift.

 

And that wasn't the only special guest - as she was joined by a friend from Belfast's Crosby High School's Class of 1931.

 

"I think it's a miracle to see the two of us as well as we are at a hundred, my goodness," says Georgia Farnham.

 

Adds Rines, "To have two of them be a hundred and be here together to celebrate the birthday, that's really amazing."
