Woman celebrates 100th birthday

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A woman in Columbus had a very special birthday celebration on Saturday.

Minne Wimbush celebrated her 100th birthday this month.

Her family hosted a birthday party for her centennial. They talked to us today about their grandmother's legacy.

"It was just Grandma for us. It wasn't like oh look at all these things. She's just a humble woman who ended up going all around the world. To this day at a hundred she still is the humble woman that she was way back when," Thellena Brown-Leonard said, the granddaughter of Minnie Wimbush.

Her family tells us Minnie Wimbush is one of the last living people who marched with Martin Luther King Junior.
