OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- A nun is celebrating a special millstone Friday.

Sister Mary Urban Harrer turned 105.

A celebratory luncheon was held in Oshkosh to celebrate her birthday.

Known as the Flying Nun of New Jersey, those who know Sister Urban say she is always helpful to those who need help.

"She was considered next to God; anyone who had a health issue or problem with someone in the family, always came to sister," said Maggie Luckerath, friend of Sister Urban. "She was just all over the place. She just had so much energy, no one had energy like sister and her work ethic was unbelievable."

Sister Urban came to the U.S in 1935 from Germany and retired in 2007.
