She is celebrating her 103rd birthday here at the Legacy Gardens in Bristol, Bucks County. FOX 29 Photojournalist Bill Rohrer captured the moment for #INFOCUS.
“She just loves life and loves company, enjoys family, friends,” Gerry West, Loretta’s granddaughter said.
About 30 friends and family members came to wish Loretta a Happy Birthday.
Tootsie is known as mom mom toots, loves to fish and root for the Phillies.
“She likes to watch the Phillies, definitely 4 o'clock, 7:00 whatever time the games are she is there. She is a die-hard Phillies fan,” Gerry said.
Like most Great Great Great Grandmothers Loretta loves making other people happy.
“She walks around in her little cart, her walker with candy and gives out candy to the residents she is very kind, Gerry said.
If you ask Loretta how old she feels—she will say fifty. If you ask her the secret to her longevity—she will tell you too.
“Secret dancing—dancing laugh,” Loretta said.
