Tyler woman celebrates 104 years

Posted: Updated:

An East Texas woman turned 104-years-old on Tuesday, and we were there for her big celebration.

Singing, laughing, and cake were all a part of Doris Stringer's birthday party at Briarcliff Health Center in Tyler.

This is Stringer's twenty-eighth birthday celebration at Briarcliff.

She is one of the building's first residents and staff there says her birthday was a chance for everyone to honor her.

"I mean turning 104 is a big accomplishment for anybody, says Briarcliff administrator Mark Moore, "It's something we like to do, it gets everybody up and active and it's something we try to do."

Briarcliff Health Center has five residents who are in their hundreds, and they say an extra special celebration is being planned for Stringer's one-hundred-fifth birthday.
