Pauline Long definitely still has her appetite as she turns 107.

The longtime Chattanooga resident requested a fried chicken dinner for her birthday on Thursday.

Granddaughter Pat White said she still loves her sausage and biscuits with hot coffee in the mornings.

She was born April 20, 1910, in Newnan, Ga.

The seven grandchildren are Ms. White, Arthur Domineck, Jr, Rhonda Jones, Ray Maddox, Dot Graves and Eric Domineck Sr. Arthur L. Domineck passed away a month ago.

There are 19 great-grandchildren, 21 great-great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren.

Her sister-in-law is Opal Collier, and there's a host of nieces, nephews and friends.

Ms. Long is the oldest member of the New Emmanuel Baptist Church where Terrance Hannah is the pastor. She taught Sunday school for the primary boys and girls and was the Sunday School song leader until age 100.

She has resided at NHC HealthCare since 2015. Until that time she lived alone at the Mary Walker Towers for over 35 years and was an outstanding resident.
