Goldie Conn celebrates 106th birthday


Prestonsburg Health Care Center resident Goldie Conn celebrated her 106th birthday on Saturday.

PRESTONSBURG – Prestonsburg Health Care Center resident Goldie Conn celebrated her 106th birthday over the weekend. Family, friends and others, including some special guests, joined Conn for a birthday party at Prestonsburg Health Care Center.

Among the visitors was country music artist Chris Stapleton, a Johnson County native and Grammy-nominated performer who was in town to perform three sold-out shows at the Mountain Arts Center. Stapleton sang Happy Birthday to Conn and also presented her with a gift. His wife, Morgane Stapleton, accompanied him to the birthday party.

“She looks forward to her party every year because a lot of family lives out of town and sometimes they get to come and see her,” Prestonsburg Health Care Administrator Lynn Watts said. “She said she didn’t want to do anything special but we knew she loved music and were so happy Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane were able to visit during this year’s party.”

Conn’s love of music is evident at her annual birthday party. Sundy Best, a Floyd County duo, attended one of Conn’s previous birthday parties.
