Monday wasn't just any birthday for one lady in Grand Forks, because not many can boast turning 102.

Monday wasn't just any birthday for one lady in Grand Forks, because not many can boast turning 102.

Margaret Fladeland celebrated her 102nd birthday with friends and seven of her children.

Her oldest son said she made to this day because of her daily exercise routines and clean lifestyle. The birthday girl never smoke or drank alcohol.

Family members said Margaret is always easy to be around because of her easy-going personality.

Margaret found it easy to be around her large, pink birthday cake.

"I like it because of the frosting on it," said Margaret, notorious for her sweet tooth.

The big birthday bash was also a time to share fond memories.

"She has been a good sister though, and always good-hearted," said her sister, Pauline Paulson.
