ROME, N.Y - Mary Malinowski has been living for a little more than a century. On Sunday Mary and her family celebrated her 106th birthday at Rome Memorial Hospital.

Mary said that she worked very hard to get to where she is today.

"I ran a department store for 33 years. I made them very wealthy people," said Malinowski.

Last year's birthday was huge for Mary, she got to meet one of her biggest fans, President Trump.

"I met him in Utica, he got off the plane, came down, and we shook hands. I worked hard to get trump in her office, you should see my room," said Malinowski.

Her family took a video of the President leaning over in a crowd of people and shaking the woman who worked very hard to get him elected.

"Up to 90 people I got to vote for him, and I got pictures all over the wall for trump," said Malinowski.

Her nephew Jim Zakala said her Aunt Mary, means the world to him.

"She was like my second mom, whenever my mom had to go someplace, aunt Mary would take care of me. and she would come down every Sunday after church and we would have coffee tea and cheese," said Zakala.

Mary did have some very good advice for the next generation.

"Go to work and work and save your money," said Malinowski
