LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A Louisville woman is proving your age is only a number. Marie Cassady turned 101 years old on Sunday.
The Belmont Village Senior Living center threw her a birthday party to celebrate this weekend. Cassady moved there earlier this year.
Over the years, she has taught cultural dances in the community. She stopped teaching 2 years ago when she turned 99.
However, she still dances and sings in her church choir.
She says she didn't feel any older on Sunday, and has advice for others wanting to live a long and happy life.
"I think if you keep on remembering that life goes on and you don't let hardships deter you..you just keep on going," says Marie Cassady, who is even active on Facebook.
She requested that we post this story online, so that she could share it with friends.
