Long time Arizona resident Joann Singleton celebrated her 95th birthday on Saturday, August 15. Over 40 relatives and friends gathered at the Golden Corral to help her celebrate this milestone. Grandchildren and great-grandchildren from Tracy and Fresno California arrived to help mark this festive occasion.
Joann is currently holding at six generations under her wings – which is subject to increase any day now.
Joann said the highlight of her life is to spend quality time with her family, and that helps to keep her alert and smiling. Joann’s father, Rev. Joe Benard, lived to be 101 years old, and we think Joann is tough enough to surpass that mark. Happy Birthday Joann!
