RHINEBECK, N.Y. -- A Rhinebeck woman celebrates a very special birthday.

Vera Van Wagner is now 110 years old. A resident at Brookmeade Baptist Home, Wagner says she feels great. Her family and friends were on hand for the celebration.

County Executive Marc Molinaro and Rhinebeck's mayor were also in attendance, officially declaring it Vera Van Wagner Day in the Village of Rhinebeck.

People in her living community say she's beloved by everyone.

She may have been born in 1904 but she remembers plenty from her childhood, including spending time in her father's candy store. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
