San Augustine woman celebrates 100th birthday
SAN AUGUSTINE, Texas (KTRE) - (Editor’s note: This story previously stated incorrectly that Laurie Trammel’s last name was Day. We apologize for the error.)
An East Texas woman celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday.
Laurie Trammel of San Augustine was born on May 23, 1923 in South Dakota. She’ll officially turn 100 on Tuesday. Five generations of her family gathered for the milestone celebration, along with friends.
During her lifetime, she was one of 6,000,000 women who took wartime jobs in factories during World War II. Soon after, she married and started her family. She worked as a nurse to help support her three children, and retired at 72 years old.
Trammel said the secret for a long life is eating healthy.
