CARMEL, IN (WRTV/CNN) — An Indiana woman is celebrated a big milestone over the weekend.

Her 108th birthday!

Jennie Zawada is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has lived in a number of places.

But, for the last few years she's called Carmel, Indiana her home.

“I think everything is good for you if you don't over do it, including candy or cake or cookies or whatever. If you don't over do it, it's ok. It's good for you,” she said about her long life.

Jennie's family says she drove her own car and even mowed her yard until she was 104.
