Wonder Woman
103 year old woman celebrates her birthday helping others - all whilst dressed as Wonder Woman.

103-year-old Mary Cotter, recently celebrated her birthday dressed as the super hero she most definitely is.

A vital member of her community, the superhero told KABC-TV that her friends were the ones who gave her the costume, stating that she was indeed a “real life Wonder Woman.”

For the past 25 years, Cotter has been spending her time volunteering at her local senior centre, where she is in charge of serving the tea, and other refreshments.

“They call me the barmaid because I serve drinks,” Cotter told local news.

The 103-year-old is still going strong, driving herself back and forward to ‘work’ everyday.

Whilst she lives alone, Cotter maintains that her health and longevity is due to her work ethic; “just keeping busy, I guess”.
