Lubbock Woman Celebrates Century Mark Along with Lubbock

Lena Richerson Lena Richerson

As we prepare to celebrate Lubbock's 100th birthday - we want to say Happy 100th birthday to a special Lubbockite. 

Lena Richerson was born 100 years ago Monday in Hugo, Oklahoma. She moved to Lubbock in 1924. Lena has two children, five grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She gave up her driving privileges just four years ago at the age of 96, but still lives independently and says she plans to continue to do so right here in Lubbock.

Lena says her secret for longevity is to face each day as it comes. Plus, she says she doesn't drink or smoke.
