Pine Belt woman celebrates 105th birthday

PETAL, MS (WDAM) - Today, a Pine Belt woman reached a rare milestone.

Dollie Bundy was born in Moselle 105 years ago, six months after the Titanic sank.

She later moved to New Augusta where she was valedictorian at her high school in 1933.

She attributes her longevity to good, clean living, and she currently lives at a nursing home in Petal with her 95-year-old sister, Effie

"I remember Moselle when it was a big place, with a lot of people," Bundy said. "I remember hunting eggs, Easter eggs in front of where the school used to be. Over by the railroad track, yeah. So far I've made it pretty good."

Her only surviving son Henry Bundy, age 75, says Dollie was married to his father, H.W. Bundy, for 56 years.
