100-year-old Calgarian shares her secret to old age
Centenarian celebrated her birthday with neighbours
Her name is Emily Sharpe and at 100, she's still sharp as a whip.
The Calgarian spent more than a decade in the United States, working in education.
She became a centenarian on Thursday, celebrating with neighbours in her Sunnyside apartment complex. They threw her a party because she has no family in town.
When we asked the birthday girl what the secret to longevity is, she replied — "damn luck."
"I smoked from the time I was 14 until I was 84.... Some other poor bloke smokes just a few years and he can't breathe," said Sharpe, who is also a breast cancer survivor.
