MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Minnesota native is celebrating a milestone birthday today.

Evelyn Kleine says she still feels like she’s 70, even though she just turned 107.

She grew up in northeast Minneapolis/Columbia Heights area and has lived in Minnesota her whole life.

She was a dressmaker during her younger years, and still sewed until her 100th birthday.

The senior who lives at the St. Anthony Health Center shared her secret to living a long, healthy life.

“I didn’t drink liquor and I didn’t dance,” she said, “so just common living.”

She thinks living a happy life also played a role.

Evelyn drove a car until age 99.
