ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - There was a special birthday celebration at Lovelace Women's Hospital on Thursday. Virginia Mcelyea has volunteered at Lovelace since she was 65 years old.
Thursday, she turned 95. Surrounded by family and coworkers, Ginny rang in another year with cake in the hospital's cafeteria.
"It's a good place to work and I enjoy coming on Thursday and I will come until I drop dead. Hope it's not next year," said Mcelyea, laughing.
So what's her secret? She says, "keep busy, don't just retire and sit home on your butt."
