Friends and family gathered in Seymour to recognize an amazing century’s worth of life.
Charlotte “Lottie” Mitchell was the guest of honor. The woman was celebrating her 100th birthday, delighted to be surrounded by dozens of people at her home at the Covered Bridge Health Campus.
But it wasn’t until the party started that the real surprise came. A fellow centenarian and former Franklin High School classmate Harold Thompson walked in to the celebration, leaving Mitchell with a look of shock on her face.
“That was about the highlight of the party,” said Claude Mitchell, Charlotte’s son.
