Sulphur resident turns 100

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Sulphur resident Thelma Lyons turned 100 on Wednesday, July 4 but celebrated on July 7 with family and friends. 

Lyons was born on July 4, 1912 and has seen a lot of changes in this world. She said her fondest memory is of when she got married.

Her family and friends helped celebrate her birthday with a party at her Sulphur home. And it's easy to see she a woman many people care about.

"She's been instrumental in teaching me so many things about life and always being there. My mother died early so she's been the grandmother to my children," Mona Pellerin, a relative of Lyons, said.

"She's never met a stranger in her life, I promise you, and that's what I love about her," Francis Andrepont, a longtime neighbor and friend, said.

Sulphur Mayor Chris Duncan also presented Lyons with a key to the city. 

"It's been so nice and to see so many friends," Lyons said of her 100th birthday celebration.
