Local Woman Celebrates 100th Birthday

Sally Colella

Sally Colella, a resident of La Cañada Flintridge since 1959, celebrated her 100th birthday with a socially distanced party. The festivities included a drive-by parade with enthusiastic participants from three generations of her family, friends, neighbors, an antique car club and the Fire Department. Colella’s late husband, Frank Colella, previously served as JPL’s director of Public Affairs. Together, the two of them were actively involved in the community. The centenarian was an avid golfer for more than 50 years at Verdugo Hills Golf Club and still enjoys swimming year-round.
