WEBB, Ala. (WDHN) — A Webb woman celebrates turning 102 today and it never looked so good.

According to our reporter on the scene, it seemed like the whole town came out to wish her a Happy Birthday.

Ethel Deese has lived in the Wiregrass for the majority of her life, friends tell WDHN that she has always been actively involved within the community.

When her family realized they couldn’t have a traditional birthday party this year due to the pandemic, they decided to find another way to celebrate.

“This is something that we could do for her. We sort of laughed at ourselves to start off with, when we started about a parade and then the closer we got, the more we realized that we weren’t going to be able to do anything else. So we decided to do that,” Ethel’s daughter, Janie Lane said.

Miss Ethel truly enjoyed her day and even received gifts from her friends and family.

From all of us at WDHN, Happy Birthday Miss Ethel!
