Lois Wooten of Del City, Oklahoma turned 105-years-old the other day. And as you might imagine her birthday was big news across the entire state.

State lawmakers gave Mrs. Wooten a standing ovation during a ceremony at the Oklahoma State Capitol. She was also honored with a special proclamation.

Television station KOCO dispatched a reporter to interview Mrs. Wooten and to try and discover the secret of her long life.

Mrs. Wooten and her husband moved to the area in the 1950’s. She managed the cafeteria at a local junior high school and her late husband was a firefighter at Tinker Air Force Base.

She grew up in the Roaring Twenties and learned how to drive behind the wheel of a Model-T Ford.

By the time she turned 98, Mrs. Wooten decided it was time to hand over her car keys, but she still keeps up with modern technology. She has an i-Phone and prefers to text rather than use a landline.

As for Mrs. Wooten’s secret recipe to a long life? Well, to be exact, it involves 11 herbs and spices.

“I ate a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Twinkies,” Wooten told the KOCO reporter. “I don’t like to cook much. I eat a lot of frozen dinners. But who cares?”

Exactly. So the next time the doctor tells you to eat more arugula and less fried chicken, just tell him the story of Lois Wooten from Del City, Oklahoma.

And thanks to the journalists of television station KOCO for doing a beautiful job telling Mrs. Wooten’s story. Watch below:
