(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Addie Burtnett celebrated her 100th birthday, Saturday at Country Squire Retirement Community. Burtnett was born January 20, 1918 in Harvard, Illinois.

A devout Christian, Burtnett attributes her longevity to her faith carrying her through the years.

“Believe in God and follow him, it’s our only chance,” Burtnett said.

Prior to moving to Missouri, Burtnett was an active member of the First Christian Church in Oregon, where she taught children’s Sunday school classes for 50 years.

Burtnett has spent several years working in the cafe of Heartland Healthcare (now Mosaic Life Care) in St. Joseph, Missouri. She has enjoyed a life long hobby of baking cakes for family and friends.

Burtnett said she didn’t want any particular gifts for her birthday, but was happy to celebrate her centennial of life with friends and family.

Snow showers will start just after rush hour on Monday morning and will taper off in the early afternoon. These will be on the lighter side and will only produce a dusting to maybe an inch. Highs will be in the middle to upper teens with winds out of the north. Temperatures will remain cold through the first half of the week but by midweek we could be seeing a slight warm up and another chance for some wintry precipitation.
