Mary Munekiyo celebrated her 104th birthday on Saturday at Hawthorne Court Retirement Community in Kennewick, surrounded by fellow residents and about 20 family members, many of whom traveled to Tri-Cities for the occasion. Munekiyo, who was born in Pasco and lived in Tri-Cities her whole life, was walking seven miles per day until two years ago, according to family members. "They always say that old people are over the hill," says Munekiyo, "but I haven't reached the top yet."
