Wilmington resident toasts to her 100th birthday

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A special celebration for a special woman Saturday afternoon. Betty Ann Gable turns 100 years old Monday.

Gable was born on August 27th, 1918. She had a luau-themed party with her friends and family.

Gable celebrated in grand fashion and shared some words of wisdom and her secret to longevity.

“Drink good vodka. And smoke cigarettes. And pray to the Lord Jesus Christ,” said Gable.

Gable still lives by that motto, with her vodka seltzer by her side at the party. Her daughter says she has always had a vibrant sense of humor.
