Charolotte Coxe has seen a lot of life in 98 years and is still as active and alert as ever. Coxe celebrated the milestone of her 98th birthday with friends and family at a party on Saturday, Aug 6, at her Highlands residence.

“I’m a very lucky person,” Coxe reflected. “I’m very thankful for my life.”
