Prayer And WD-40: Hattie Schneider Celebrates 105th Birthday

March 31, 2014

Hattie Schneider of Molino is celebrated  her 105th birthday Monday.

She gives credit  for her long life to “prayer and WD-40″. Hattie says  she is not sure why she has lived so long or what God’s purpose is for her,  but she has trust in the Lord.

She has one son, Carlton Abbott, two grandchildren, and many great and great-great grandchildren.  Her family and friends said they thank God everyday for blessing them with her, and she is a true inspiration to everyone.

    Happy Birthday Mrs. Hattie! I remember when my Mama permed your hair at our house. You were always so sweet to us. And when I was diagnosed with mild arthritis in my knees, you told Mama to try WD-40… it was nice and warm and eased the pain a great deal. So Thank you, God Bless you and have a wonderful 105th Birthday!
