This year, her friends at St. Anthony Health and Rehabilitation outdid her 110th birthday celebration. They treated her to a musical performance and sweet treats.

Kleine said she's grateful for the show of love.

"I just don't know what to say. I have had this happen once before and it was the same experience," Kleine said. "I just was left speechless."

Kleine said last year her secret to long life was never smoking or drinking.
