Most of us think 100-years-old would be a good goal to shoot for, but for Mrs. Laura Stinson of Sylvester, 107 is the magic number.

Stinson was born September 27th, 1906 in Albany and has outlived six siblings and one of her cousins you may have heard of, musical legend, Ray Charles.

Family and friends gathered this past Saturday to wish her a happy 107th birthday, and from everyone here at FOX 31 we want to wish Mrs. Laura Stinson a happy birthday as well, with many more to come.
