CORPUS CHRISTI - A special 'Happy Birthday' tonight to a Coastal Bend woman.
Cora Chasteen turned 100 years young today. Her family and friends threw her a party at First Baptist Church.
Cora was born in Hill County and moved to Kleberg County when she was four years old. She remembers riding in a horse and buggy as a child and her first car was a Model T.
Cora still drives today and stays active by helping other people. She says "I do what i can, trying to find out what the good Lord has in mind and doing it. There's bound to be something or I still wouldn't be here. So, as soon as i find out, that's it."
On behalf of of all of us here at 6 News, we wish Cora a very Happy 100th Birthday.
