PALISADE, Colo. - A Palisade woman celebrated her 100th birthday on Thursday.


Bessie Seamount shared the moment with her friends and family at The Retreat assisted living home.


She was born in 1914 and said she's seen a lot in her days as a teacher and nurse.


“[Of] all the inventions, I remember how wonderful we thought our grandfather's Model-T was,” said Seamount.


After a little more than an hour of partying, Seamount knew it was time for a nap.


Caregivers said she's still very healthy for her age and they expect her to see more birthdays to come.
