The surprise, which was captured on video and posted to YouTube, featured Rigney being serenaded with a birthday song and presented with gifts including flowers, a tiara and a letter of congratulations from Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who recognized her as the oldest working nurse in the country.

“You are all wonderful,” Rigney said through tears of joy. “I know I’m a pain in the you-know-what!” Rigney temporarily left the profession at the age of 67, but her retirement was short-lived. “I stayed retired for about five months, then I came back, and here I am,” she told KING-TV in a 2014 interview. Sheri Morris, assistant nurse manager, said Rigney is a valuable asset to the hospital. “She runs circles around all of us,” Morris told Today.com. “She’s a wealth of wisdom and knowledge, and we absolutely love her.”
