LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Maine woman is turning 103 and she got to celebrate with her family - all six generations of it.

Irene Chouinard (SCHWINN’-ard), of Lewiston, turned 103 on Monday. She has six children, 25 grandchildren, 49 great-grandchildren, 38 great-great-grandchildren and one great-great-great-grandson.

The Sun Journal reports that nearly 100 of them gathered Sunday in her honor.

Tina Longchamps said if there’s one thing to know about her grandmother it’s that she loves her family.

For her part, Chouinard told the gathering: “If this is a dream, I don’t ever want to wake up.”
