A woman in Clayton, North Carolina, celebrated her 100th birthday on Tuesday dressed up in a yellow lei and festive gold-colored party hat.
Margie Adams is the oldest resident at the Gabriel Manor Assisted Living Center and everyone there considers her a “jewel” of the community, ABC 11 reported.
“During her long life, Margie has worked as a nurse and cosmetologist. She even sang the original jingle for RC Cola in early radio ads,” the outlet said.
Photos showed Adams in front of big pink signs outside the assisted living center that read, “Happy Birthday Margie” and “You Are Loved.”
Adams, who was married for 75 years and is a devout Christian, told reporters clean living is the secret to her long and happy life.
“Yeah, I don’t smoke and I don’t drink. I used to when I was a teenager, but not now,” she commented.
