Happy birthday to Ella Mack from all of us at the Charlottesville Newsplex. Ella turned 101 Friday. The Scottsville native now lives at the Riverside nursing home in Charlottesville. She said her secret to long life is lots of ham, bacon, salt and prayer.
“The Lord has kept me in my right mind. He kept me in my mind and I tell him I know what I'm doing even if they don't let me do it. Sometimes they don't let you do what you want to do and I know I want to do it just the same,” said Mack.
Ella also said laughter is important and that's why she likes to make people smile.
