Betty Holland turned 103-years-old on Feb. 11 at Sarasota Health and Rehabilitation Center. Her secret to living so long?

"Don't die. Just keep rolling along," said Holland. 

Holland was born in Wisconsin in 1916. Holland and her family, consisting of her son Mike Holland and daughter Jane, have been vacationing in Siesta Key since the 1950s and moved down permanently since 2013. Holland is now the oldest resident of Sarasota Health and Rehabilitation Center.
