Happy Birthday Mary Peterson! She has lived next to my mom for more than 50 years and is somewhat of a celebrity in our neighborhood. A very sweet woman who could make wonderful cookies. Great article. Thanks for the heads up on her 103rd birthday, I wouldn't want to miss it.

Wow! So great to hear news about Mary and good news at that. Mary was friends with my in-laws, Ed and Vivian, at the Senior Center. After Ed passed away and Vivian took up residence in Sunrise in Sunnyvale, we would often run into Mary coming to Sunrise to visit Vivian and others with fresh-baked cookies in hand. We always had a nice chat and both agreed that she is an angel on earth. Congratulations on your 103rd birthday!
