Arkansan Celebrates 105th Birthday

- LITTLE ROCK, AR - The First Baptist Church on Calhoun Street in Little Rock helped Mrs. Georgia Williams celebrate a milestone birthday this Sunday.

Williams turned 105 on August 8th but the church held off to the 31st to hold a celebration of life.

Williams was born in Danville in 1909 and soon moved with her family to Little Rock.

Members of the church held a two hour luncheon and shared their favorite memories that they have had with Williams. Despite being 105 she attends that church every Sunday.

Congregation members say she is a role model with a kind heart and a young soul.

When asked what her secret to such a long and health life is, she took no credit.

"It wasn't my secret it was something that God, he wanted me to know that I could live long enough this many friends."

"My gosh, to have this many friends and people that love me," says Williams.

 The City of Little Rock named Sunday, August 31st "Mrs. Georgia Williams Day".

She even received a note from Governor Mike Beebe.
