Hattie Maddox Horne of Pineville will celebrate her 100th birthday Monday.
She was born in the Tennessee mountains and grew up with five brothers and two sisters. She later moved to Gastonia, where she married George Horne. They raised six children there and in Bessemer City.
She now also has 18 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
She attributes her longevity to “the good Lord,” love from her family and her spirited little dog, Chang Lee King.
