The year was 1924, a first-class stamp was two cents, a gallon of gas was 25 cents, and Nacy Will was born in Little Rock Arkansas.

At 100 years old, Nancy Will has something we could all use more of. “I’m a little bit country but a lot of rock and roll,” said the one-hundred-year-old birthday girl, Nancy Will.

With family and friends coming from near and far, Mrs. Will was at times overwhelmed.

Even though the celebration was all about her, Mrs. Will has a gift for making everyone feel special. “God bless you. God bless you. I’m just so proud of you,” said Mrs. Will to one of her guests.

“This picture over here is when she worked at a modeling agency in Oklahoma City,” said daughter Susie Hobson.

The family reminisced about old times. “Mom would frequently show us how she could tap dance, doing that on the hardwood floors in the kitchen. Shuffle hop step, shuffle hop step,” said daughter Nancy Schick. 

A representative from Centenarians of Oklahoma stopped by to make her 100th official.

“Today we have honored close to 3,000 Centenarians and you’re number 2,986,” said the Centenarians of Oklahoma.

With all the fuss, there are really just two things Mrs. Will needs to be happy, her coffee and her chocolate. “Chocolate anything. Chocolate pie, chocolate cookies,” said Mrs. Will. 

As News 9's Mike Glover said his goodbyes, she left him a serenade of her favorite song and her favorite saying. “God bless you real good, I mean that God bless you real good,” said Mrs. Will.
