She was born April 20, 1910, in Newnan, Ga.
Ms. Long has outlived her son, Arthur Domineck Sr., by 35 years. Her daughter-in-law is Delores Domineck.
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.
