A local woman celebrates her 110th birthday today at St. John Neumann Nursing Home.

Anna Edwards, also known as "SisJack" was surrounded by five generations of family and friends today as they cut the cake and celebrated her life.

Anna came to the Philadelphia area from North Carolina in the late 1930s. She was part of a family of five boys and five girls. She was the oldest girl, and second oldest child in the family.

Anna has lived in Philadelphia for more than 80 years and is the only surviving member of the 10. She's also outlived her two children. Her descendants own a local family business.
