Agnes Allison McNaughton's family had planned a big party Wednesday afternoon and decided to hold it as a celebration of her life, The Scotsman reported. McNaughton died at 12:10 a.m. at the nursing home where she lived in Paisley outside Glasgow.
Staffers at the home said reaching the century mark was "all she ever talked about."
"She had been determined to reach 100," a 65-year-old nephew said. "Her entire family has lived well into their late 80s and 90s, and she really wanted to be a centenarian. It's all she talked about."
