Eileen Fulton, better known as “Grandarling” by her friends and family, turned 100 April 15.

Q: What was your childhood like?
A: I … had a musical childhood. I started to play piano at 8 years old and then played violin with one of my brothers. I wasn’t a natural-born musician. I had to work at it, practicing four hours a day in high school. My wish was to be an evangelical musician.

Q: How did you come to know the Lord?
A: I had Christian parents who always had Bible reading and prayer together. … I saw Jesus guided my parents. … They had a quiet trust in the Lord. I wanted that. I saw I needed a Savior.

Q: How have you been involved in the church through the years?
A: I taught piano for many years. It was my desire that each of my students would develop their talents and realize God gave them their abilities and gifts. I have been involved in missions through WMU (Woman’s Missionary Union).

Q: How do you see yourself involved in church in the future?
A: At this season of my life, I’m not able to faithfully attend my church, but I’m connected through praying for my church family.

Q: What difference has Christ made in your life?
A: Christ is my daily strength. He is the One who has allowed me to reach this 100th birthday.
