From all of us at Channel 7, Happy Birthday to one woman turning 106-years-old today. Charlotte Strehlow lived on a farm, until just four years ago she moved into the Bell Tower Assisted Living Facility in Merrill.

Strehlow said she has no secret to living a long and healthy life, she just thanks God for every day she's given.

"I am so thankful that I've got my brain," said Strehlow, "All these years and he left me with a good brain, and I appreciate that. And I'm gonna use it!"

Strehlow said she still remembers the days before electricity, running water and telephones.
