Carroll County woman celebrates 105th birthday

HILLSVILLE (WSLS10) - A Southwest Virginia woman celebrates a major milestone.

Louise Dehaven is enjoying her 105th birthday. She is a former Hosiery Mill worker and she has been an active member of Carroll County for several decades.

She said the secret to staying healthy is being able to live in the moment.

"I don't know. I don't feel that old, it just snuck up on me. No, I think walking is what done it," Dehaven said.

She said she plans to celebrate her 106th birthday next year.
