Beaufort County Woman Celebrates Her 105th Birthday

Today is a very special day for a woman in Beaufort County. It's her 105th birthday.

Essie Whitley was born in 1908 in the Bunyon Community on Lizzard Slip Road in Beaufort County, the fifth of seven children.

Whitley was a homemaker all of her life and had seven children.

Today she lives in Washington and is a member of Mother of Mercy Catholic Church.

A reception will be held for Whitley later this month. She'll also be honored this coming week with a proclamation from the mayor of Washington.

All of us here at WITN wish her a happy birthday on such a milestone.
