Floydada woman celebrates 107th birthday


FLOYDADA, TX (KCBD) - A Floydada woman celebrated her 107th birthday Thursday. Bearie Coleman was born on September 30th, 1903 in Oakwood, Texas.

Oakwood is between Dallas and Houston just east of Interstate 45.  Coleman married 16 years later, and moved to Floydada with her husband in 1929.  She's called Floydada home ever since.

It's where she raised 13 children, and is known for inviting everyone over to eat.  "What is your secret," KCBD asked.  "I ain't got no secret," Coleman said. 

Several of her children were in Floydada for the party Thursday.  Coleman also has 44 grandchildren, 55 great grandchildren, and more than 14 great, great grand children.
