A Carthage woman celebrates an entire century of life, and her secrets to success are really quite simple.
Resident of Oak Pointe, Freda Bailey, turns 100-years-old today.
Bailey has lived and worked in the Carthage area for most of her life and raised two children.
But her family has now grown quite substantially and every member spent today giving hugs, taking pictures, and surprising her with a cake too big for words.
Bailey didn’t expect such a big celebration, but couldn’t imagine her day any other way.
“Oh it’s wonderful, it’s wonderful. They’re all such wonderful kids, I’m just so proud of them,” says Bailey.
Bailey says her secret to success is good, hard-work.
And for year 101, she just hopes to continue to feel healthy.
