"I ate a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken and Twinkies," Lois Wooten told KOCO.

Wooten may have learned to drive in a Model T Ford, but she is up to date with technology, constantly texting on her iPhone.

"I don't like to phone, but all I do is text," Wooten told KOCO.

The Oklahoma House of Representatives honored Wooten with a birthday proclamation on Wednesday, the television station reported. She has lived in Del City since 1950 and remains independent despite her age. Wooten continued to drive until she was 98, KOCO reported.

She mostly spends her time at home, sending homemade birthday cards, the television station reported. Wooten worked for 20 years as the cafeteria manager at Kerr Junior High School in Del City, but she does not do much cooking any more.

"I don't like to cook much. I eat a lot of frozen dinners. But who cares?" Wooten told KOCO.
