December 16, 2016


CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBS) — A South Jersey woman is celebrating a major milestone birthday in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and said her secret to living a long life is not dieting.

Concetta Talucci celebrated her 102nd birthday on Friday. Family and friends threw a big birthday party for her at the Spring Hills Cherry Hill Assisted Living Community.

Talucci, who was born in 1914, shared her secrets to her longevity. “Just don’t diet — eat. Eat everything,” she said. Talucci added that she worked two jobs — as a glassblower and then at a hospital emergency room. Talucci’s younger sister, who is 99 years old, also attended the party.
