WILLIAMSPORT - Emma Dillon said she thinks the secret of long life is being happy.
"And as long as I'm happy, I want to stay here," Emma said just two days after turning 100 years old at Williamsport Retirement Village.
A native of Indiana, Emma said she and her brother and sister moved around a lot when she was younger because her father was not only a contractor but also a Bible worker.
"I worked in nursing for about 30 years," she said.
Emma added that she thinks she has been living in Maryland for the last 30 years but she isn't sure.
Married twice, she never had any children of her own but adopted two children.
"I don't watch television much anymore - I watched enough the last 50 years," she said.
Also new to the 100-year club at Williamsport Retirement Village is Virginia Crim whose birthday was July 7.
