Woman marks 105th birthday with parade

By The Associated Press

WESTFIELD — A suburban Indianapolis woman has turned 105 years old with a car parade to mark the occasion.

Ruth George celebrated her birthday on Saturday in Westfield, according to WTHR-TV. A line of cars drove by the senior citizens center where she lives and greeted her. Family, friends and a few strangers participated.

She said she has been lonely without a lot of visitors but the parade cheered her up.

George, a three-time cancer survivor, said her secret is working hard and trusting in God.

She has four sons, 14 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
