Feeling Fine at 109 –

When Maggie Brown turned 109 last week she spent several days partying. Most of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren dropped in at one time or another throughout the week to wish her well. Born in the White Oak area in 1907, she was married to the late Sam Brown and they moved to Greenbrier where they raised 13 children. Longevity is nothing new in Maggie’s family. Her mother lived to be 100 and her oldest child is 85. Maggie still lives in her home with one of her sons and scoots around the house with her walker. To her delight, her many offspring drop in frequently to visit.
