A woman considered to be Indiana’s oldest resident has died at age 112.

Anna Garrett of Indianapolis died on May 27, two months short of her 113th birthday, according to Lavenia & Summers Funeral Home.

Garrett was born in 1908 in Sparta, Georgia, and her family moved to Indianapolis when she was 14. She and husband James Garrett had two daughters. He died in 1993.

To celebrate her 112th birthday last year, cars rolled slowly past Garrett's house, honking and yelling encouragement as she sat outdoors.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
