GREENSBURG, Pa. - Irene Ciuffoletti, a resident at St. Anne Home’s continuing care community, celebrated her 111th birthday on Sunday.

Residents and staff from St. Anne Home celebrated with Ciuffoletti by singing "Happy Birthday" and having a party.

Ciuffoletti, who is the oldest resident at St. Anne Home, attends Mass daily and attends almost all activities at the home, according to Justin Meyer, the director of development and public relations.

“She wheels herself to our main dining room for every meal,” Meyer said.

Ciuffoletti said the keys to her longevity are living a good, Christian life and eating a lot of Italian food.
