LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - She was born May 16, 1922, and if you do the math, you know how old she is.

Yes, Georgia Adams of Longview is 100 years old Monday and she’s getting around just fine. She lives at Longview’s Buckner Westminster Place where many relatives have come to visit and attend her party held this afternoon. She says the secret to longevity is to keep active, and she can still run. And she says she’s just got to dance.

“It’s just what I felt like doing. Now I came that way. I was packaged before I got there. Some people say you don’t come with anything when you’re born, but I did. I came with feet that wanted to dance. I did,” Georgia said.

And she still does. Buckner Westminster Place now has four residents who are centenarians.
