On Wednesday, all eyes on Pear Porter. Why you may ask? She's turning 105 years old, and she is quite the celebrity at her own party.
Her nephew, Victor Marshall, said the family has a history of relatives living a long time.
"My mom lived to be 94. One of the sisters lived to be 93, and the baby sister lived to be 87, and Pear is 105," Marshall said.
Marshall said his aunt has always been full of spunk and energy, even at her age.
She is known in the family to be quite the character because of her funny antics.
"I don't know why she did this, but she would wear two hats, two sets of eyeglasses, and if we didn't watch her she would put on several sets of clothes," Marshall said.
With over three generations of relatives in attendance at her birthday party, it's no wonder why Porter's great niece Jecelyn Marshall said the family is so close.
Jecelyn visits her great aunt almost twice a week.
Although Porter is well aware of her age, Jecelyn said she loves to joke about how old she really is and she is still young at heart.
"I sat down and I talked with her and I said hey your birthday is coming. She was like, yeah. I was like how old are you, and she said I'm 20. I was like, ok," Jecelyn said.
With the party in full swing, her family has one last present to give to Porter.
A customized shirt letting everyone know just how many years she's earned.
