Local News

Rachel Vickio turned 106 years old.

She doesn’t feel it either.

“Tell you the truth, I don’t,” said Vickio.

With a large crowd of family and friends on hand, it was a day that Rachel will never forget.

“I can’t explain how much I appreciate and how much I love them all.”

One of Rachel’s sisters recalled how great life was as a youth. “Rachel was the one we always went to for prayer,” said Teresa Orr Cope.

“She was a bad girl,” quipped Gloria Mineo. “She was always throwing sticks and giving us all kinds of things.”

And the secret to the sisters life of happiness and prosperity boils down to love.

“We’ve had a lot of fun and a very good life and a good family,” said Mineo.

Rachel added, ‘We’ve always stood by eachother.”
