Harrison County woman celebrates 103rd birthday


CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – Virginia Francis Folio celebrated her 103rd birthday at the Clarksburg Nursing and Rehab Center Tuesday afternoon.

Employees and family members threw Folio a surprise party, giving residents the chance to listen to live music and eat birthday cake.

We asked Folio what her secret was to living to 103 and she said, she doesn’t have a secret other than eating healthy throughout her life.

“It was a big surprise, I never expected this but I’m happy they all showed up, relatives and friends,” said Folio.

Folio is the oldest current resident at the facility. Officials plan on throwing her an even bigger birthday bash next year.

Mayor of Stonewood, James Terango proclaimed October 16, 2019 as “Virginia F. Folio Day” in honor of her birthday.

The team at 12 News wishes Virginia a Happy Birthday.

A second Harrison County resident also celebrated a birthday past the century mark on Tuesday.
