Family and friends celebrated the 100th birthday of Ann Curtin at Harding Park in Hubbard.

When she was 13 years old Curtin says she cleaned the house for her neighbor in Masury, who was the notorious bank robber John Dillinger. Curtin tells us she didn't know what he was doing at the time, but that he paid well.

Ann shared her secret to a long life with 21 News.

“I pray then I turn my prayer over to God because I know he can do more than I can. Then I don’t worry, said Ann.

The birthday girl also says it helps to have good friends, love everyone and laugh a lot.

Curtin's daughter says her mom also sewed some of the very first penalty flags invented at YSU by Dike Beede.
