STONEY POINT, NC (WBTV) - Most 100-year-old's have a secret to living an entire century. Willie Stikeleather's secret is eating apples.

Willie grew up in Alexander County and lived through some pretty hard times as a child. Her family only ate the food they grew and for most of her childhood, didn't have windows in her home, only shutters.

But the hard times have made an incredible woman. Willie has 24 descendents between her and her deceased husband. She plans to spend her 100th birthday in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

"[We'll be] shopping and eating and just doing whatever we want," says Willie, with a flair that lets you know she still means business.
