Oshkosh woman celebrates 107th birthday


OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- An Oshkosh woman celebrated Halloween by turning 107 years old.

Erna Cartwright celebrated at the house where she was born, and where she still lives today.

Friends visited Erna and a local flower shop sent her a bouquet of roses, one for each year she's been alive.

"I just can't comprehend that I'm 107 years old and I try to figure out how this happened," she said.

It may be that she kept herself busy; Erna worked as a bookkeeper for Oshkosh b'Gosh and then Oshkosh City Cab until she retired at age 102.
