Crockett Woman celebrates 106th birthday and lives out life-long dream

CROCKETT, TX (KTRE)- It's a special day for Crockett resident Mamie Price. She's turning 106 years old. We learned Tuesday, a life-long dream come true.

Mamie's always wanted to be on television, and Tuesday she's a star. Five generations of family came to celebrate her special day at Winfield Nursing Center.

Price was born and raised right here in East Texas. She loves spending time with her family, and staying very active.

"Glad you're all here. Thank you to everyone. Love you," said Price.

Family and nursing home staff tell us Mamie is very self-sufficient and likes to do things on her own. This includes waking up in the morning, getting dressed and making herself coffee.
