Ms. Etta Celebrates 106... and Goes Viral! BY LEANN DILBECK • editor@mypulsenews.com

M

s. Etta Garmon celebrated her 106th birthday among friends and family Thursday, July 27, all while becoming a viral sensation on social media! A photo of Ms. Etta holding a sign that read: “Hello! My name is Etta Garmon. Today I am 106 years old. How far can I travel on my birthday? Like and share this post.” And like and share they did! As of press time, Ms. Etta’s birthday picture had been shared 790 times on Facebook, all in an effort to reach her great-grandson who is stationed in Japan serving in the US Navy. Family friend Loretta Kirby, who made the post, reported that it did make it’s way to the great-grandson in less than 24 hours who commented on the post to tell his grandmother that as soon as he’s off the “floaty thing in the ocean,” (Ms. Etta’s reference) he will call her! Among the 35 people who joined Ms. Etta (seated) for her celebration were from left to right Shelton Bohlman, granddaughter Jamie Plemons, Loretta Kirby, and Kayla Cleland on the far right.
