A Tri-State woman is celebrating a milestone birthday with her family this weekend.

Nellie Limp of Mount Vernon turned 100-years-old on Thursday.

On Saturday, her family came in from nine different states to celebrate with her.

Nellie was born in 1921 in Union County, Kentucky and was one of 16 children.

She has 24 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren, 18 great-great grandchildren, and many more step grandchildren.

"I thank the Lord that I was able to live to be 100," says Nellie Limp, celebrating 100th birthday. "Don't give up. Just keep it going because the Lord is with us."

Nellie's Dad lived until the age of 111.

In her 100 years, Nellie has loved crafting, traveling, and making handmade quilts for her family.

It's a seasonable and dry start to Friday, but the heat is going to turn up this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will stick around with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity may take the way it feels up a notch. Those southerly winds will help push in that moisture making it feel more like the low 90s. An isolated shower can't be ruled out, but any rainfall won't ruin our plans.
