Pine Belt resident celebrates 102nd birthday

COLLINS, MS (WDAM) - About 35 family members and friends gathered Friday to celebrate the 102nd birthday of Mrs. Ora Sanford at a nursing home in Collins.

Sanford was born in 1913.

"It's amazing to be 102 today, I wasn't expecting this," said Sanford. "I'm surprised this many people came."

Sanford lived in Seminary most of her life, and had four sons and two daughters, who were also in attendance.

She has lived at the nursing home for about seven years.
