York woman celebrates 108th birthday

Catching up with Willa Mae Moore

YORK COUNTY, SC (WBTV) - There aren't many people left in the world that can say they were born in the year 1907. Willa Mae Moore is one of those people.

From her home at White Oak Manor in York, SC, Willa Mae brings smiles and songs to pretty much everyone she meets.

Thursday morning, from the front parlor at White Oak Manor, Willa Mae belted her favorite gospel tune, "Rough Side of the Mountain."

The 108-year-old woman raised 12 kids and currently has 35 grandkids. Ask about great-grandchildren and even Willa Mae's daughter Barbara has lost count.

The secret to her longevity she says, is simple, "I just keep going."
