Southern California woman shares her life's secret on her 105th birthday

PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) — A Southern California woman celebrated an incredible milestone: her 105th birthday.

Ruby Jones was celebrated by friends, family and local leaders at a surprise party in Pasadena on Friday evening.

She was born in Texas in 1918 and moved to Los Angeles in 1945 when she was just 27 years old.

Still vibrant and full of life, Jones loves watching game shows, cooking shows and of course ABC7.

During the celebration, Jones shared her secret to living to 105 years old.

“That’s my secret, that’s always been my secret. Good food, good men, rum and coke,” she laughed.

Happy birthday, Ruby, and cheers to your 105th birthday!
