Advice from 100-year-old: Work with a smile

MARLOW  Just by looking at Bertha Frick, one could never tell she just celebrated her 100th birthday. But she did and friends and relatives wished her well at West Wind Assisted Living Center in Marlow recently.

Frick was born June 6, 1918, near Chattanooga to Lemmy Lamar Ida Isabell Bunell and Lynn D., "L.D" Bentley. 

"We lived near Lookeba for several years while dad farmed. I had seven brothers and sisters and we all helped out on the farm," Frick said. "It was hard living and we learned canning and preserving at an early age. I also learned to cook at an early age. My specialty was cornbread and biscuits but I never got to be as good as mother. My mother was a great cook."

Frick went to West Texas to pick cotton for several years, but she would always come home to Oklahoma.
