A Corpus Christi woman blew out candles for her 101st birthday on Sunday.

Katherine Lovette moved to Corpus Christi in 1933.

She and her husband lived in the very first house on Carroll lane.

Lovette was born in Trinity County near Apple Springs just South of Lufkin.

She says that a lot has changed in the world since she was younger and shares some advice.

Believe it or not the 101-year-old still goes grocery shopping.
