Grace Van Eaton aged to triple digits on Monday. She turned down a stripper and a party, opting to celebrate her 100 birthday with close family at a quiet breakfast, where they shared memories of a past filled with fond moments and large family gatherings.
Marlene Clark, one of her granddaughters, got her a stripper for her 70th birthday and Van Eaton was thankful that the past did not repeat itself.
