“Since I was 99, I’m getting parties every year. I said to the director [of the center], no more parties,” she told ABC New York station WABC.

Signore spoke proudly of her younger days, when she worked for the MTA before taking three months off to travel around Europe. But her most rewarding moments in life have come from her everyday routine.
