While a DJ played some of her favorite songs, guests danced and toasted to the spunky 99-year-old lady.

One fellow Bishop’s Commons friend warned the crowd, “Florence is one great lady. But, you don’t want to come up against Florence in a game of cards!”

Florence, a Brooklyn native moved to Bishop’s Commons in January of this year.
