ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Sallie G. Burney helped cut her birthday cake as she and a couple of dozen friends celebrated at the Slater King Adult Day Rehabilitation Center.
Burney grew up in Boston, Georgia. She worked for 35 years as a cook at Archbold Memorial Hospital in Thomasville and moved to Albany in 1999.
Miss Sallie has a caretaker, but still dresses herself and makes her own bed every day. She's known for her love of music and dancing.
Miss Sallie, she's a beautiful person. For 103, her health is real good, real good," said Center Director, Barbara Gibson.
In fact, they say Miss Sallie has seldom missed a day at the King Adult Center since she started there at age 94.
And she looks happy on her 103rd birthday!
