A 108-year-old Watertown woman has been honored as the oldest centenarian in the state by the South Dakota Health Care Association’s Century Club for the second year in a row.

Dorothy Antritter was a longtime legal secretary who loved to travel. She was born Nov. 25, 1904, in Minnesota and remembers celebrating the end of World War I. Her sister died at age 108 and one of her few remaining relatives is a 92-year-old cousin. She lives at Jenkins Living Center in Watertown.
