WAYNE - Today was 01/11/11, but Edna De Old, of Wayne, marked another unique occasion; she turned 102 years old. Still independent and healthy, the New Jersey native is more active than most. Edna says she cooks three meals a day, keeps active and also credits her genes. She also credits family, friends and faith for her long life.

She wore a shirt that says "if things get better with age, then I'm approaching magnificent." Edna was married in 1934 and became a nurse, caring for others for 50 years. She still volunteers and has a glass of red wine every night.

When she was born in 1909, Theodore Roosevelt was president, the Lincoln penny was introduced and a loaf of bread cost 5 cents.
