Trexlertown woman, Yankees fan celebrates 101st birthday

TREXLERTOWN, Pa. - A Lehigh Valley woman celebrated her 101st birthday Friday.

Beatrice Jean Silva celebrated the occasion with family and friends at the Mosser Nursing Home in Trexlertown, Lehigh Co.

Beatrice is a huge New York Yankees fan, so she was thrilled one of her presents was a poster of Derek Jeter.

So where does Beatrice get all of her energy? She's only willing to give out part of the answer.

"I don't know. It was inherited from somebody. I ain't telling," she said.

Beatrice celebrated her 100th birthday last year with a party at Yankee Stadium.
