News – “Woman still eating fried chicken and bread pudding after 109 years”

wistv.com – GRETNA, LA (WVUE) –Is the secret to living past 100 years old fried chicken and bread pudding?

A Gretna woman celebrated her 109th birthday on Sunday. Mrs. Odile Clark Washington was born in 1909.

She has been living at Belle Vie Living Center ever since she broke her hip in 2008. But that didn’t bust her love for life.

Miss Odile, as she is called, had plenty of kind words for people who helped her celebrate her big day on Monday.

“Thank you guys. I want to thank everyone who came out and celebrated with me this evening. Thank you very, very much,” she told the crowd.

When she is not celebrating her birthdays, Miss Odile still lives a normal life.

She still eats her favorite foods: fried chicken and bread pudding. 

She loves to play bingo and trivia, so watch out if you see her at the table. She also enjoys regular coffee time and bible study.

Happy birthday, Miss Odile.


If consuming fried chicken is the key to living to 100 than consider me Highlander levels of immortal, guess I’ll have to start adding some bread pudding in there to really take it to the next level.
