ALLIANCE, OH (WOIO) - It's not every day someone turns 108 and today a northeast Ohio resident did just that.
Bernice Culp is basically in a class of her own and Wednesday a celebration honoring her life was held at Altercare of Alliance.
Few people, including Bernice, can say they were around when William Howard Taft was president, the maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph, the average worker made between $200 and $400 per year and the American flag only had 45 stars.
Blessed with biological genes of long life, Bernice had two sisters, one lived into her mid 90s and the other lived be 105.
Culp says she never smoke or drank and has two children, Jim and Juanita, and both of them are in their 80s.
Flanked by 108 carnations Alliance Mayor Alan Andreani and her children showed up at her party to help celebrate.
Happy Birthday Bernice!
