WILMINGTON -- "I've had quite an active life," Ivy Mohr says with a laugh. Wilmington resident Ivy Mohr turns 100 years young Tuesday. This is her life in numbers. 1914, She became a U.S. citizen, immigrating with her family from England. One, for the sister Mohr adores. 1935, the year she met her first husband. Mohr was fixed up with him on a blind date by a mutual friend. "He had a box at the opera. So we went to the opera. Not that I thought at that time I liked the opera," Mohr said with a shrug. Sixty, the number of years Mohr was married.Mohr had three children. "The oldest one just had her birthday. She was eighty," Mohr remembered. The secret to staying so young at 100? Mohr says it's all about love. "I have so many nice people around me," Mohr said with a smile, "you can't ask for much more when you get to be my age." One hundred: an age that Mohr says is just another number. Mohr also stays young by walking every morning. She says she's looking forward to celebrating her birthday with friends and family.
