ABBEVILLE, La. - A Vermilion Parish woman is celebrating a very special birthday this weekend.

Verdice Delcambre turns 100 years young on January 10, and her family celebrated with a parade outside of her home.

She is currently a resident at Maison du Monde nursing home in Abbeville. The best part is that her family was able to keep the parade a total surprise.

She was born on January 10, 1921 to Elle and Nelles (Boudreaux) LeBlanc.

She was married to Howard Delcambre for 35 years before he passed away.

She has 3 sons (one of which is deceased), 9 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and 12 great great grandchildren.

Happy birthday, Ms. Verdice!
