Family, friends gather to celebrate 90th birthday for LaPorte County twins


LAPORTE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHR) - It's a huge celebration for Hoosier twins who just turned 90.

"Hey we're 90, not everybody gets to be 90! And we're twins, how about them apples," the women said during a recent party.

Loretta and Lorraine are from La Porte County but family members came from all over to throw them a joint birthday party this week.

They know their bond is special, and that hitting the milestone birthday together is even more rare.

But after all these years, they still know how to get under each other's skin. It was evident when they hit the dance floor.

"You made a mistake, not me! Up and back up and back up and back up and back. God gave her the better memory than me, I got the second one," said one of them.

"Yeah she's the mouthy one and then she hits me," the other responded.

The twins say they hope to live to be 100 together and celebrate that birthday too.
