Amazingly she walks without a mobility aid, still does her own shopping and is not on any medication. 

Asked about her secret, she told WCBS: “I think the secret of 107: I never got married. 

“I think that’s the secret.

“My sister says, ‘I wish I never got married’”.

But then again Louise’s sister is 102 years-old, so marriage can’t be all that bad and clearly longevity runs in the family.”

Louise celebrated her latest big birthday at the Barlow Community Center in Coop City.

More than 100 friends and family members attended.

She quipped: “I said I’ve had enough of parties.”

Louise, who was born in 1912 – three months after the Titanic sank – but she has suffered setbacks recently.

She is legally blind, recently battled pneumonia. She survived an assault and robbery aged 103. 

Asked for health advice, Louise added: “If they have exercise, I do the exercise. 

“If they have dancing, I dance. 

“I still do a little dancing. After my lunch, I will play bingo, so I had a full day.

“Italian food. Italian food is very good for you.

 “I was brought up with very good food. No soda, no cake.” 

Alelia Murphy, 114, is currently America’s oldest woman. 

Coincidentally she lives in Harlem, where Louise was born.
