PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. -- We'd like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Rachael Johnson who turned 101 this month.

Johnson does not take prescription medication but does eat chocolate every day, according to her family.

"She is a quiet lady with a kind spirit and is still able to feed herself and carries on a conversation," family members shared.

Born in Martinsville, Virginia in 1918, Johnson moved to Hopewell as a child. After she graduated from Hopewell High School in 1935, she worked at Woolworths during World War II and later as a clerk at A&P Grocery and Super Fresh.

When she retired in 1984, she opened her own daycare.

She was able to share her 101st birthday with friends, family, and of course chocolate!
