YAKIMA, Wash- A lifelong Yakima resident turned 101 Wednesday.  Her family and the staff at Highgate Senior Living threw her a party.  Gladys Labberton taught elementary school all over the Valley.  She says she never imagined she's live to be 101.

"This is a surprise and all of this is more than enough I just have so much to be thankful for", says Labberton.

She has four children, six grandchildren, and seven great grand children.
