A New Lenox Woman Met Her Musical Idol on Her 100th Birthday

Here’s one of the most heartwarming stories of the year!

Catherine Shanahan turned 100 over the weekend. She celebrated with her family, which includes 13 kids, 49 grand kids and 75 great grand children!

To cap off her evening, her kids escorted her to see Tony Bennett, who is eight years her junior, perform at the Rialto Square Theater. Arrangements were even made for the centenarian to meet Bennett backstage, get an autograph and snap a few photos.

She was even the featured story on several local news outlets including the Joliet Herald and NBC5 Chicago.

How cool is that!?
