CHESTERFIELD, Va. -- This grandma isn’t going to let turning another year older slow her down!
Beatrice Ingerling, who will turn 100 years old this weekend, plans on celebrating the best way she knows how: pole dancing.
"Someone asked her what she wanted to do for her 100th birthday, and she said, 'a pole dance.' And she no sooner said, 'I don't know why I said that,'" her daughter Carol Lensch told WWBT. "And the rest of us were like, 'We don't know why you said that either, we didn't even know you knew about pole dancing mom.'"
Also known as “Grandy” and “Queen Bee,” Ingerling is in great health and her only medication is a daily glass of wine.
"We have worked it out that we are going to set up a pole for her. And she is going to do a pole dance. Very tastefully dressed. Not in the leopard print leotard that she once suggested, but she will stand up by the pole because that was her dream," Lensch said.
Ingerling is a mother of three children and grandmother to many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even great-great-grandchildren.
Ingerling's family created a Facebook group called "100 days to 100 years,” for 100 days until her 100th birthday.
Ingerling will receive small presents from her family, friends, and loved ones, but the most unique presents so far is a letter from President Obama and the First Lady.
