ROBSTOWN - Isabel Garza was born on Dec. 19, 1918. On Tuesday, her friends at the Robstown Housing Authority held a small birthday party to celebrate her 99th birthday.

Garza had no children of her own, but did raise her late-nephew Jose Luis Munquies. Her half-sister and niece were at the celebration.

She has lived at the Housing Authority's Senior Villa for the past 22 years. She loves to dance, listen to the radio and her records. She keeps active by going in on activities held at the housing authority.

Garza worked at the Robstown Cleaners and lived in San Antonio before moving to Robstown.

Garza is visited everyday by her provider Sylvia Contreras, her home provider for the last 15 years.
