The Celebrations of this incredible Milestone have been going on since September, when she was Honored at Theatre West's 50th Anniversary Event!
That is how I know Connie. I met her back in 1963 and she was full of 'piss and vinegar' then, and she still is now.
Above, with Ed Asner, at another 'event' in which she was honored by her peers.....And by the way, if you want to see her in action, tune in to "Two Broke Girls" on December 17th on CBS! She also just did a commercial for Acura---I don't know when that will be on, but look for it, too!
I called her today to wish her Happy Birthday---she was getting ready to go to the Party that was being held at The Motion Picture Home out in Woodland Hills, where she resides. She has a cottage there--lucky her!
She said...."Let me call you tomorrow when I will be home and I can put my feet up because of my edema...." That is just about the only thing wrong with her.....lol.
She is amazing! Full of life and she has 'all her marbles', as they say....I mean, she is Incredible!

They had 100 Cupcakes in Honor of Connie's 100th Birthday.... I hope they Celebrate this fantastic milestone till next November 27th!
One of the first things Connie said to me today was, "God I miss Betty Garrett!" It brought me to tears---I do too!
Connie still drives, by the way, and while during the last few years of Betty's life, Connie would pick her up and they would go to their 'Show Buddy's' gatherings!
So, there she is....the fabulous Connie Sawyer, beloved by one and all..... 100 years old!
