Salisbury Woman Celebrates 100th Birthday

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury woman celebrated a milestone so special on Thursday, Mayor Jim Ireton even proclaimed the day in her honor. 

Irene Crowson turned 100 years old, complete with a party at Vinny's La Roma in Salisbury, surrounded by friends and family. The city's newest centenarian said her secret is simple: Hard work. Irene said she started out working on the farm when she was young, and there might be a few more reasons why she is still going strong.

"I eat most anything I want to," she explained. "I always have."

"The love of a large family," added Irene's granddaughter, Tracy Hobbs. "We're close. We're really close. That, and we always say sweet potatoes, because she eats a lot of sweet potatoes."

Hobbs said Irene still walks on her own, and bathes and feeds herself. She has three grand children, five great-grandchildren, 5 great-great-grandchildren, and one more on the way.
