Hancock County Friends Celebrate Their 100th Birthdays Together

Posted: Updated:
 When you think about growing old, you may not think about reaching 100. Two residents of an Ohio Valley retirement home in Hancock County celebrated that magic mark Friday.  

Ann Hayes and Margaret Froats celebrated a huge milestone together: their 100th birthday.

These two women are not only roommates at Woodland Hills, but they're also good friends.

"Maybe we do a little arguing through the day but we get along real good," Froats said.

The party went on all afternoon with Weirton Mayor George Kondik stopping by to present the ladies with a resolution from the city.

Ann Hayes says she's known Mayor Kondik since she was a child.

"I and the mayor grew up together. He was a man that worked in the post office and we know a lot about each other that we never told," Hayes said.

Margaret Froats said she's happy that all of these people came to celebrate her birthday and she still can't believe that she's 100 .

"Its hard to tell, but I can say that I'm glad that I'm still here which I didn't think I'd ever grow up to be this old," Froats said.
