QUITMAN, Miss. (WTOK) -- A resident of Clarke County is celebrating her 103rd birthday.

The family and friends of Magnolia McGee celebrated her birthday at Family Life Church in Quitman on Friday. Her family tells us she is a big fan of WTOK and likes to watch Andrea Williams on the morning show. McGee is in good health, and she talked about what has helped her to live so long.

"I get up happy, thanking the Lord for when he has stayed with me all night long, and stayed by me, and got me up this morning. I appreciate the Lord every morning I get out of my bed," said Magnolia McGee, who celebrated her 103rd birthday.

"103, what can we say, but she is blessed and highly favored. That is basically an understatement. We are so proud of her and we're grateful that we are able to travel down here and share this moment," said Joann McGee, the granddaughter of Mrs. McGee.

McGee's family says it is a blessing to have her in their lives.
