A woman who spent her entire life in Rock Island will reach a new milestone this weekend.
Elanor Roets turns 103 years old tomorrow. She lives at Friendship Manor.
The employees, her family and friends held a parade for her there in lieu of a birthday party.
Roets says her secret to longevity is staying positive.
“Living a good life I guess,” Roets said. “Just doing what everybody else does.”
