NORFOLK, Va. – A firefighter’s widow got quite the birthday surprise from her late husband’s fire department.
Jeanette Carty has lived in Norfolk, Virginia for decades. She still lives in the same house where she and her husband, Joe Carty, raised their children.
Joe Carty served with Norfolk Fire-Rescue for more than 30 years.
On June 22, Jeanette Carty celebrated her 100th birthday with some help from a few members-in-training from the fire department.
The crew showed up to her home in a fire engine with flowers to wish her a very happy birthday.
