Pocahontas woman turns 106-years-old

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) – It was a day filled with happiness and love as family and friends celebrated Marie Davis turning 106-years-old.

Davis said she is one of the oldest and most loyal fans to her beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and to show their appreciation, she received an autographed baseball from the 2013 team.

"My husband used to give me wonderful gifts, but I would say this is a very special gift," said Davis.

Davis said the secret recipe to a long and happy life, needs only one ingredient.

"You just have to love everybody," said Davis. "I don't think I've ever had an enemy."
