Wilmington woman celebrates 100th birthday

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Not everyone gets to celebrate their 100th birthday. But one Wilmington woman did just that Saturday.

Betty Ann Gable wanted celebrate her birthday in style by wearing her flower crown.

All her family and friends attended her luau themed party.

She says the key to living a long life is "vodka and cigarettes."

Gable has a fun sense of humor so when her family asked if she still had friends around, she said she "is the last rat in the barn."

"My favorite memory is living everyday and having fun," Gable says.

A big happy birthday to Betty Ann Gable!
