LIBERTY - Lucy Murphy, the oldest person in Casey County, celebrated her 110th birthday Thursday.
Mrs. Murphy was not honored with a large celebration this year as she had been in the past because of her health, however, she did have a cake with friends at Liberty Care Center, where she has resided the past year. She had been living with her daughter, Helen McDonald on Memory Lane.
She received a plaque from the Casey County School Alumni Association for being the oldest living person to attend Casey County schools. Her daughter, Helen McDonald, accepted the plaque at a recent luncheon.
Mrs. Murphy also got a letter from Williard Scott, who does birthday wishes on the NBC television Today Show.
"She does pretty well, but not as well as she was a couple of years ago," said Mrs. McDonald.
During an interview on her 104th birthday, Mrs. Murphy said she liked to learn something new each day. She also talked then about her wedding in 1913.
