Winooski Woman Turns 102 Years Old - Happy Birthday Helen!

WINOOSKI, Vt. - A very special birthday was celebrated Monday in the Green Mountain state.

 

Helen Urban turned 102 years old.

 

Urban lives at the Our Lady of Providence assisted living facility in Winooski. She spent most of her life in New York City.

 

Helen has three children, ten grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.

 

She’s still, at 102 years old, whip smart.

 

“Years ago when I was quite young, I was in the doctor's office, he says 'You're going to live a long life.' So I worked hard….Life is very good,” she said.

 

“She's always a source of inspiration. If ever I think I want to cut a corner somewhere, I'm like 'No, my mother wouldn't do that',” said her son John Urban, of Essex.

 

Her secret to a long life? Her family says she’s always stayed active, ate healthy and loved walking.
