PLAINVIEW, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's most senior citizen is celebrating her birthday with a series of parties. After all, it's not often someone turns 113.

Only this year did Anna Stoehr move from her farmhouse near Potsdam to an assisted-living home in Plainview. At one party this week, Stoehr celebrated with her children, grandchildren and seven of her 25 great-grandchildren.

Her birthday cake was ablaze with all 113 candles.

Her 81-year-old daughter-in-law, Marlene Stoehr, says she was kind of tired after following her mother-in-law around to multiple days of celebrations, which also included a gathering of about 170 people Sunday at a church in Elgin.

Daughter Lois Neighbors says her mom remains sharp and loves to play Scrabble, bingo and other games.
