Rosia McClellan turned 106 in January. She is pictured above feeling the gifts brought to her by Stat Home Health.

Celebrating a milestone birthday is a time most individuals look forward too, but one local woman recently celebrated her 106th birthday.

Rosia McClellan was born Jan. 25, 1909, and raised in nearby Bernice.
McClellan said she worked as a farmer most of her life.

“We grew everything — cotton, corn, potatoes, watermelon,” she said. “You name it, we raised it.”

During a recent visit, McClellan talked about how hard she and her family worked because there was no tractor back then.

She also said people don’t know what hard work is now.
