Woman in Schenectady celebrates 105th birthday

A local woman celebrated quite the birthday on Monday – 105 years old. Louise Franchetti was honored with a party Monday at the Schenectady Center for Rehab and Nursing in Rotterdam.

Franchetti enjoyed cake with friends and family.

Her daughters say she’s always been there for them, and loved to bake chocolate cakes for other peoples’ birthdays.

As part of the celebration, Franchetti was given a citation by Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara.
