Local woman says there's "no secret" to living to 100

FAIRMONT, W.Va. (WDTV)-- On Saturday a local woman celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by friends and family.

Over 100 people came out to celebrate Josephine Lauderman at Muriale's restaurant in Fairmont. Josephine was born on September, 12 1917 and grew up on a farm. She later moved to Bridgeport where she has lived in the same house for 66 years.

Josephine, who worked for 30 years, said that one of the greatest joys of her life has been raising her two children, Brenda and Tom. Josephine still drives herself everywhere and likes to go to church and the grocery store. She told us that in her opinion there's no secret to living to 100, but said she does enjoy getting together with friends every morning.

All of us at WDTV would like to wish Josephine a very Happy Birthday.
