Madge White is 100 years of age, but you would never know it.

She is beautiful, lively and full of fun, with a great sense of humor.

She has lived at Riverside Place for three years now, and her friends there are very loyal, even though they claim she always beats them at cards.

Her advice for a long life is: First God, then Family, then water aerobics. She has gone to water aerobics at the YMCA for years.

The biggest change she has seen in the world over her lifetime is the way children talk to their parents. “I wouldn’t have lived to be 100 if I had talked to my parents like they do.”

She is a confirmed Baptist and explained she has been one for 100 years and nine months, as her mother was a devout Baptist before her.

Her husband Hugh passed away in 1977. She has one son who lives in S.C. and her daughter is Brenda Cloud – a resident of Bainbridge.
