Louisville resident celebrates 104th birthday

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A special Happy Birthday to a St. Matthews resident who has lived for more than a century.

Marie Cassidy turned 104 on Thursday, but a big birthday party was held for her on Saturday.

Friends and family came to celebrate, eat plenty of food and dance.

Members of the Louisville Ethnic Dancers, which Marie helped start, did a special performance.

Folk dancing is just one of her passions.

"Music lead to the dance and that was fascinating then we went traveling to the places where the dances came from," Cassidy said.

Some of those places include Israel, Germany and France.

When asked if she has any secrets to living a long life ... she said no. She's just happy and thankful to be with family on her special day.
