There is a legion of devoted Oklahoma City Thunder fans, but we think you will find one woman's story inspirational.

Meet Della Craighead, 98, a retired English teacher from Bartlesville.

She was thrilled Friday evening when she was surprised by her nephews with a trip to see the Thunder play against the 76ers in Philadelphia.

Craighead moved to Philadelphia to be near her family, but she does not miss a Thunder game if it airs on television.

The Thunder showed their appreciation for her on Facebook after they defeated the 76ers, 111-97.

Many of Craighead's former students established a Facebook appreciation group to keep up with her.
