Columbus grandmother celebrates 106th birthday

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus woman celebrated 106 years of life Friday.

Louise King was born on Jan. 24, 1908. For her 106th birthday, she celebrated with family and friends at a small gathering.

Louise is a resident of Magnolia Manor Nursing Facility.

Her granddaughter Francina Williams says her grandmother has a lot of wisdom to offer.

"There are a lot of things that she's seen and experienced in her life that we will never experience," said Williams. "And some of the stories that she shared over the years, it's just kind of amazing, so we think it's a real blessing."

Louise is planning to have an even bigger celebration in February.
