TACOMA, Wash. — The oldest working nurse in the country turned 90-years-young on Monday.

SeeSee Rigney was surprised by her coworkers at Tacoma General Hospital with a sash, a tiara, a bouquet of flowers, and a specialized letter from the governor of Washington.

SeeSee has worked as an operating room nurse for nearly 70 years.

Surrounded by her loving coworkers, other nurses at the hospital sang SeeSee’Happy Birthday.’

“I thank you all, oh my goodness,” she said through her tears.
