3 women all turning 100 years old inspire anchor’s new life motto

There must not be many complaints about the care at a Rock Island nursing home.

Three women at the facility are all turning at least 100 years old this month.

“The devil don’t want me, and the Lord don’t have room," joked one of the women. After reading this story on air, WGN Morning News anchor Robin Baumgarten said those words are her new life motto.

Nellie porter from Princeton, Illinois, is 103; Margaret Danielson just turned 104; and Ellen Johnson, the young pup in the group doesn't hit the century mark for a few days yet.

They all share the same advice for long, happy lives: Stay active
