A West Virginia grandmother got a big surprise this weekend.
Phyllis Meadows was invited to her church to celebrate a friend's birthday on Saturday, but it turns out, the party was to mark her 90th birthday.
Friends, family, and the congregation of Levi First Missionary Baptist Church helped Meadows, affectionately called “Ne Ne,” party the night away.
“I've had 90 beautiful, happy and pleasant years, all my life,” Meadows said. “I've had such a good life. God has given me the best life, and I've enjoyed every bit of it.”
There was a lot of laughter at this birthday celebration, as friends and family shared their favorite "Ne Ne" stories, including her favorite sayings, like "don't care what they call me, as long as they call me to eat!”
Her 90th birthday party was complete with a dinner buffet and, of course, cake.
