Biloxi native celebrates 100th birthday with friends and family

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - There was great cause for celebration on Sunday at First Missionary Baptist Church in downtown Biloxi. The congregation celebrated the 100th birthday of one of its members.

Inez Peters has been a member of the church since she was born on December 24, 1913. This means that she has been a member of the church longer than anyone else there today.

Although the party was actually a few days after her birthday, it was full of great memories, great food and most of all, a loving community.

Peters was joined at the party by five generations of her family. Her daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter and great-great-granddaughter were there to celebrate the special day.

WLOX News wishes Mrs. Peters a wonderful and happy birthday.
