Local centenarian shares her secret to long life – ‘Jesus’

“Work hard and be active in church.”  that’s the advice to young people shared by Miss Laura Grate who turned 108 last month.  She was recently honored by the Guilford County Board of Commissioners receiving a standing ovation, a framed certificate and a bouquet of flowers from the board. The board celebrates residents 100 years old or more. **Miss Laura was born in Conway, SC. She cleaned houses until she was 95.  At age 104, she came to Greensboro to live with her daughter Vera.
