104 and counting


Reinette Sullivan celebrated her 104th birthday on Oct. 8 with friends and family at the Bret Harte Retirement Inn in Grass Valley. She was born in Kerman, Calif. in 1917. She is one of 10 children, eight girls and two boys. Five of her siblings are still living. Sullivan lived most of her adult life in Bakersfield. She relocated seven years ago to Grass Valley to be closer to her daughter, Anna, and her son-in-law, Terry. Sullivan’s caregivers say she is loved and admired by all the residents and staff at the Bret Harte.
