On Monday, Dec. 18, Esperanza Trejo celebrated her 100th birthday beside her family and friends at Meridian Care of Alice.

Trejo's room was filled with flowers and cards wishing her a happy birthday.

She was married to the late Ernesto Trejo. Together they had six children, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

She was a florist in the Alice area for 42 years and a homemaker.

Trejo's secret to a long life work and family; both keep you active and inspired.
