EAST PEORIA, Ill. -- One woman is celebrating a milestone 100 years in the making.
That's right, Sunday Thresa Wainright celebrated her 100th year old birthday.
The centennial woman gathered with dozens of friends and family who came from as far as Georgia.
Wainright said she used to walk a lot and eat right, but she's not sure how she got to be 100.
"It feels wonderful," said Wainright. "I have a hard time at times but I enjoy everything. I go to the boat all the time. That's my only hobby."
Family said they planned to watch a slideshow, eat cake, and maybe just make a trip to the Par-A-Dice Casino.
