It's not everyday that someone lives to see both World Wars, the invention of the car, and all of the technology we so easily take for granted.
Sunday, friends and family gathered at vision church in Santa Rosa Beach to celebrate all 105 years of Annie Lynch's life.
Panama City also celebrating Lynch's milestone birthday by creating a holiday in her name. The city declared Saturday, June 22, Annie Mack Lynch day.
So what's Lynch's secret? Her daughter, Gloria Johnson said, "She's never taken medication. We're not a medication family. We don't take medications. Our diet is mostly healthy food. Not all the time, but mostly healthy. So it's worked well for us."
Lynch's advice? "Don't drink, and live a clean life," she says.
"I tease her all the time because when she comes to these family functions. She wears these cute little jeans and at 105 she looks better in jeans than I do," said one family friend.
The gym at Vision Church was packed Sunday morning, celebrating with the theme that you're always young at heart.
Lynch told NewsChannel 7's Kati Weis that one of the most impressive moments she's seen in history is the inauguration of the first black President. It's something she thought she'd never live to witness.
Living a long and healthy life also runs in the family. Lynch's father lived to 106.
