(WCSH) Florence Bearse celebrated her 100th birthday Thursday.
Known for her no-nonsense attitude and sense of humor at Bangor, Maine's Westgate Center for Rehabilitation, Florence did not shy away from sharing her secret: wine.
"I like my wine. Don't take it away from me," she said.
Before retiring Bearse ran a restaurant in Lagrange where she dedicated her life to serving others.
"The people have taken me, I think. They understand me. That I'm crazy," Bearse joked.
