A birthday party a century in the making
In December 2023, The Connection shared an inspiring story about resident Jeanne Furr turning 100 years old (https://www.castlepinesconnection.com/a-century-of-grace-and-joy-jeanne-turns-100/).
With the help of some local businesses and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Independent Financial in Castle Pines threw Jeanne the birthday party of a lifetime. January 4 – Jeanne’s actual birthday – was a day of celebration for everyone.
Sheriff Darren Weekly swore Jeanne in as an honorary deputy and she was surrounded by family and friends – some who drove in from out of town and even flew in from out of state.
Jeanne beamed in her crown and sash as the crowd sang her “Happy Birthday.”
