The family of Helen Patterson celebrated her 99th birthday on May 17.
Patterson moved to Napa with her husband Jack in 1955 where they raised their three sons.
In the past, Patterson's family has celebrated birthdays with big family get-togethers, but with the pandemic, this was not possible, so they held a Zoom meeting instead. Patterson's family thought that the meeting would be a smaller event, but with the use of technology, they were able to contact so many more members of the family, than could have ever shown up for her birthday, under normal conditions.
