BUFORD, Ga. – A Georgia woman celebrated her 103rd birthday Tuesday.

Bessie Faulkner turned 103 over the weekend. Family and friends came together at the Buford Senior Center to celebrate on Tuesday.

The grandmother of nine said that she doesn't have any secrets to her longevity.

"I've worked hard my entire life," she said.

Bessie was born on June 21, 1912 and has lived through the Great Depression, Prohibition, and the Civil Rights movement.
