TERRY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Hinds County woman celebrated her 104th birthday with lots of festivities Saturday in Terry.

Family and friends gathered to wish Mrs. Eula V. Polk a happy birthday at Little Bethel CME Church.

Mrs. Polk was born May 24, 1912.

William Taft was president and just weeks before she was born the Titanic sank.

The great grandmother is alert and active and described as sweet and filled with love and laughter.

When asked if she was excited about the party held in her honor Polk said she was too old to be excited but offered advice to younger generations on living a long life.

"Just keep the faith in God and let God do the leading and they do the following and just keep God in their heart and mind," said Polk.

Little Bethel Church issued a proclamation recognizing the Terry centenarian's life.

She has also been a member of the Heroines of Jericho Lodge for 69 years.
