TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - Hazel "Memaw" Pangburn Vick was born Sept. 20, 1910 in Humble, TX.

She's ten minutes older than her twin brother, Howard "Bubby" Pangburn.

"Bubby" and a slew of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren made their way to East Texas to celebrate the rare occasion.

Meanwhile, the family's already let the Guinness Book of World Records know about the celebration.

Not too many boy-girl, fraternal twins have crossed the century mark.

"It's wonderful to have your friends and all your family to come visit you," said Vick.  "I've been looking forward to it."

Vick still drives--just into Lindale and no farther than Tyler.

Pangburn said he doesn't drive, but he still has his license.  He said he spends most of his time growing 'maters at his home, near Houston.
