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.

“Amazing” was the only word that Coxe could think of to describe how it felt to have so many people come to a party just for her.

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

“Everyone at the party had such a good time, were wishing her well and they stayed until the very last minute,” said Joyce, Coxe’s daughter. “Mom loves to go to and give parties.”
