COLUMBUS, Ga. — Mary Ship Harrow and Marth Shipp Averett are identical twins – they’re also almost 100 years old.
The twins, born on July 2, 1916, in Georgia, will be celebrating a century together on Saturday in front of more than 300 family members, friends and elected officials, FOX 5 Atlanta reports.
“This is a very special occasion for our family and we are blessed, honored and excited for my mother and aunt as they approach their 100th birthday,” Mary’s youngest daughter Gerri Jones told FOX 5 Atlanta. “They are strong women of faith and they have touched so many lives during their lifetime!”
