"Things always liven up when she puts in an appearance." This quote appeared in Erie High School's 1914 yearbook, The Spokesman. Today, at 101, Mrs.

Dutton is still making people laugh. She celebrated her birthday Tuesday with a party at Highland Terrace, a retirement center in Clearwater where she has lived since 1976.

"Her whole face just beams when she sees animals." Project Pup is an organization that brings William and Ruth Lynn "I went from size to MAUREEN BYRNE GOOD FOR YOU pets to retirement homes for visits with the residents.

Dutton also has a fondness for chocolate. She received so much of the candy when she turned 100 that she ended up giving some of it away. Mrs. Dutton spends her days listening to music, playing bingo and exercising. "She keeps pretty active for someone her age," Vecchio said.

Though Mrs. Dutton gives no particular reason for her longevity, she is a strong proponent of bottled water. She said she never drinks tap water and has been drinking spring water all her life.
