Erna Hiles is a centenarian.

What's the secret to reaching 100? Erna Hiles is quick to reveal her answer: Gin!

But before she revealed her response, Erna laughed and suggested it might not be fit to print. Her family members laughed too; they knew exactly what she was going to say. Erna isn't one to mince words.

Her niece-in-law, Diana Armbruster, offered up a more family friendly response, "She's tough-that's her secret."

Whatever the secret may be, Erna turned 100 last week. Family members from across the country came to celebrate the exciting milestone with her at her home at Sunrise of Edmonds senior living.
