BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Driscoll woman is celebrating her 105th birthday on Sunday at a Bismarck senior center.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Tillie Aichele gets around with the assistance of a walker and enjoys watching the "Lawrence Welk Show."

Aichele grew up in Tuttle and worked in the grocery store.

She married Fred Aichele in 1929. The couple moved to a farm near Driscoll in 1940 and raised seven children.

Her husband died in 1965 but she continued to live on the Driscoll farm until she was 102.

Aichele says she's had a good life and has no complaints. And she says she has lost count of her birthdays.
