ALPHARETTA, Ga. — A special lady is turning 102 on March 26!

Clara D. may be the oldest resident in the Legacy Ridge at Alpharetta community - but she sure is the spunkiest! 

According to staff, Ms. Clara - a "social butterfly" - can usually be found in the dining room having her coffee or having fun with other residents.

"Everyone loves and respects her so much that we could not let this month go by without acknowledging her!" staff described.

On Thursday, March 25, staff at the senior living community will be celebrating Ms. Clara's milestone birthday with a party.

For her, living through the pandemic and turning 102 has been nothing but a breeze. 

"I can't change it, so there's nothing for me to think about it," she told staff. "I'm happy, but I survive every day. It's normal."
