"She's like the Energizer bunny that keeps on going," Montclair Senior Center spokesperson, Ester Vargas Pipersky, told The Huffington Post. "She refuses a sit-down job and just wants to keep going. She's very friendly to everyone... Everyone gets a kick out of her."

In 1930 Cotter helped her high-school win the state swim championship, she was a children's swim instructor into her 60s, and was still helping rescue see turtles in her 90s.
