YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Sue Lordi, a resident of the Seabury, turned 100 years old on Sept. 4.

One of four girls and three boys, Lordi was born in 1917 in Stafford Springs, Conn. At 17 years old, she and a friend moved to New York City, where they found work and an apartment to rent.

Lordi was predeceased by her husband in 2007. She continued to live independently until 2014, when she moved to the assisted living facility.
