Callie Terrell is one strong gal!
Callie Terrell is the oldest beautician in Tennessee and at the grand old age of 101, she is still going strong. She just celebrated her birthday on Nov 26 and had talked spoken to WREG, last year, about the drive to keep doing what she does best.
She first received her licence in 1945 and the lady says that currently, she has actually outlived most of her regular customers. While she had earlier planned to quit in 2018 but she is still hard at her work and enjoying every minute of it.
She had told WREG: "Well, I can’t describe it. I’m thankful I’m physically able to do some of the things I used to do." She also added: "I guess it’s not a lot of 101-year-old people in Memphis still working because they say, ‘Still working?’ Well, I’m still alive."
She talked about her love for the wors she does saying: "I guess my secret is just working and keeping busy because that’s what I’ve done. I had a very successful business and what I do, I enjoy doing."
Callie Terrell celebrated her 100th Birthday in grand style today. She lit up the place w/her bright red dress and smile. She’s the oldest licensed working cosmetologist in TN and perhaps the entire country. Happy Birthday, Mrs. Callie!!! #wreg #100yearsold @TNCommerceInsur pic.twitter.com/bzlFP6O7NU— Stephanie Scurlock (@SScurlock_WREG3) November 24, 2018
Well, if you are good at something and like doing it as well, carrying on is the best option for you and she has been doing exactly that through all the phases of her life. Kudos!
