One local resident is celebrating a milestone.

Virginia Bunting celebrated her 100th birthday with her 93 year old sister Ada and daughter Beverley at Autumn Healthcare in Zanesville.

She celebrated among family and friends on Saturday. Virginia says it was wonderful to be surrounded by so many friends and family on her birthday.

"Had almost a hundred people there, friends and relatives," said Virginia.

Beverley attributes her mother’s long life to her hard work and dedication to her four daughters.

"She was a hard worker, she loved her gardening. She had four daughters to take care of, of course her husband was there, my dad, she cooked big meals at Thanksgiving she did everything from scratch," said Beverley.

Virginia was one of seven children. Out of her four children she now has seven grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
