CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Happy birthday to Flossie Dickey of Cheney.

Born in 1906, she celebrated her 108th birthday Tuesday at the Cheney Care Center and is having another party Wednesday.

KXLY reports she has two living children, 10 grandchildren who call her "Spunky Monkey Bossy Flossie," 12 great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren.

She grew up on a farm near the Pend Oreille River, got married at the age of 15 and at one point worked in a Spokane restaurant.

She says she has no secret to a long life.
