A century plus nine years of life for local woman

When she turned 100, Mattie Bongs' driver's license was up for renewal. The Willard Healthcare Center resident renewed it, took her car home, put it in the garage, locked it up and never drove again. Nine years later, on Monday, Bongs placed her head in her hands and fought back tears while recalling the experience.
