LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington Continuing Care Retirement Community is asking the community for help celebrating one of their resident's 105th birthday.

Sayre Christian Village posted on Facebook that Geraldine's 105th birthday party has been canceled due to the coronavirus. Now, they're making sure that she's not forgotten.

The post goes on to talk about Geraldine's life, saying she got her GED at age 64 after having to drop out of high school because the only way she had to get to school was by train in rural West Virginia. They say she is still very independent and loves education and the arts.

They ask you to share and help her post get 105,000 likes. You can find that Facebook post below.
