Gertrude Worth celebrates her 105th birthday with Heritage Woods neighbor and friend Lillian Thorsen. Worth turns 105 years old today. Worth's earliest memory is when she was about three years-old in 1910, leaving her house to visit a neighbor and found the twin little boys getting their hands and faces washed by their mother. "I remember that like it was yesterday, because my mother didn't know where I was." Worth's favorite foods are pot roast and a "wonderful fudge my son makes, I'm a Chocoholic," she said.
