PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Taking 101 trips around the sun is something few people get the chance to do, but one local Panama City Beach woman is celebrating just that.

Friday, Ruth Breen turns 101 years old. She's an active member in the community and still sharp as a tack.

To Breen, age is just a number; she still drives herself and plays the piano like a professional.

She says there's one secret to her longevity.

"The Lord. He's the one that holds everything in his hands and he makes it possible for us to live. If we love him, he sure does love us. He's done everything for us," said Breen.

Breen's legacy will continue to live on as she is a mother of two, grandmother of five, great grandmother of seven, and great-great-grandmother of four.
