KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Mary Anne Keller turned 103 on January 29, and her birthday was celebrated by hundreds of residents, staff and family at the Royal Columbian Retirement Inn in Kennewick Saturday.

The party began at 2:30 with a performance by Uncle Joe's Banjo Band.  Mary sat in the front, alongside her son and other family.

A staff member then brought out a large cake, and Mary blew out her candles, saying, " Wow, 103!"  The residents enjoyed orange punch and then the band played her favorite song to which she sang along to,  "My Shadow."
