The families and friends of several D.C. residents continue to celebrate the birthdays of two women, both of whom recently marked a historic milestone in their lives — 100 years “young.”

Congratulations go out to Mrs. Mary Dixon, born Oct. 19, 1920. She says she loves the Lord and has been a proud member of Bible Way Church of Washington for over 70 years where she remains the oldest missionary.

She’s also a beloved grandmother, aunt, great-grandmother, friend and spiritual mother and grandmother. “Happy 100th birthday grandma. We love you,” her loved ones said.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Mrs. Lottie Wright, a longtime librarian, mother of seven sons, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother who marked 100 years on Saturday, Oct. 10.
