Dozens of friends and family members enjoyed the day with Edna "Tiny" Jackson this past Sunday as they helped her celebrate her 100th birthday at the Hidden Homestead event barn in Chalybeate.
Ms. Jackson, who was born and raised in Edmonson County, raised three children in Chalybeate alone during WWII, one of which still lives in the community, Lynn Skaggs and her husband Wavie.
"We had some hard times along the way, but we made it," she said. "We had more good times than bad."
She now lives with her daughter, Marilee Ringley in Bowling Green and is still able to get around exceptionally well. She uses a walker for assistance, which she says she doesn't need. "I only use this thing because the kids gripe at me if I don't."
Someone asked her to share her thoughts on how and why she's lived so long, to which she replied: "Just live. Don't think about it, just live. Go to work, take care of your business, just live."
