Annie Prouse reaches the century mark today.
She has seen plenty of changes in her 100 years.
“I never thought I would ever live this long,” Prouse said.
Her advice for longevity is “behave yourself.”
Born in 1912 in Salt Lake City, she was the youngest of her 14 siblings.
“I didn’t know my older siblings so well,” she said. “They were out of the house mostly when I was growing up.”
Her parents were Albert and Lottie Sharp.
The family moved up to the Blackfoot area when she was little. They lived near Grave Creek.
“We would move to the hills during the summer,” Prouse said.
