Two Columbia County residents recently celebrated their 100th birthdays two days and about a mile apart.
Vivian May Whyte Bock, a resident at Morningside of Evans, turned 100 on March 24, and Ruby Grimmer, who lives at Washington Commons, celebrated a century on March 26.
A native of Syracuse, N.Y., Bock attributes her long and healthy life to a positive mental attitude.
“I’ve just had a good time,” she said. “Everyone has been nice to me, and I’ve been healthy.”
