Madison Woman Celebrates 100th Birthday

CREATED May 23, 2014

MADISON, Tenn. – A Davidson County woman spent Friday evening celebrating a milestone birthday.

Ruby Chapman, a resident of Madison, celebrated her 100th birthday. She spent the evening celebrating at the Madison Music Jams at the Fifty Forward Madison Station.

Originally from Giles County, Miss Ruby has been coming to the center every Friday night for the past few years, but this evening was all about her.

Organizers threw a little birthday bash for her and celebrated the milestone. What has been her secret to living a long life? 

"Now listen here, now there you go! I don't got no [sic] secret! That's the Lord's work,” she responded.

Chapman also said the biggest change she's seen in her lifetime is the amount of traffic.
