Centenarian Dressed as Wonder Woman Celebrates 103rd Birthday Volunteering at A Senior Home

Mary Cotter doesn’t need a Wonder Woman outfit to be a real-life superhero.

On her 103rd birthday, the centenarian marked her special day by spending time with elderlies at the Montclair Senior Center, California. This comes as no surprise since she had been volunteering at the center for the past 25 years.

On her birthday, Cotter wore the Wonder Woman costume that comes with a scarlet cape and  golden crown which her friends gave her. She served coffee, tea, and water to the seniors before the centre’s staff and patrons presented her a cake.

Surprisingly, Cotter, who lives on her own, drives to the centre five days a week to do volunteer work. Most of the members of the facility are even younger than Cotter.

She’s like the Energizer bunny that keeps on going. She refuses a sit-down job and just wants to keep going. She’s very friendly to everyone… Everyone gets a kick out of her,” said  Ester Vargas Pipersky, a Montclair Senior Center spokesperson.

Born in 1912, the California woman has spent most of her life helping others. In 1930, she helped her high school swim team bag the state championships. When she was in her 60’s, Cotter taught children swimming lessons. She even volunteered as a sea turtle rescuer until her 90’s.

Cotter revealed that keeping herself busy was her secret to living a long life.
