SOUTH COUNTY — Soledad resident Delores Morales-Vasquez celebrated her 100th birthday May 29 with her family at Our Lady of Solitude Church in Soledad.
Morales-Vasquez has lived in Soledad since the 1980s. She has six daughters and three sons with her husband and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who celebrated with her on Sunday.
The different generations dressed in different colors to distinguish themselves from the other generations. Starting with Morales-Vaquez’s children who wore blue, the next generation wore pink and the third generation wore gray. The centenarian herself dressed in white.
The Morales-Vasquez extended family lives as close as Soledad, Greenfield and King City and as far away as Chicago, Ill., and Las Vegas, Nev.
