Triple-digit birthday bash for Longview roommates

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

A pair of roommates at Whispering Pines Lodge in Longview celebrated more than two hundred years worth of life experiences on Thursday.

Ms. Irene Coleman and Mrs. Clara Keasler were the two most celebrated birthday girls at the lodge. Coleman will turn 101 on September 3rd, and Keasler turned 104 on August 1st.

Coleman was born and raised in Hallsville. She loves Bingo, word games, and word search.

Keasler used her birthday bash to tell how she eloped with her husband by leaving a note for her mother on the family's kerosene lamp. 

"Back then, there wasn't electricity in the house, and I knew mother would have to light the lamp," Keasler said. "I was sure she would find it there."

Both ladies were presented with birthday notes from the offices of U.S. Senator John Cornyn, and U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert.
