Daisy Belle Ward was born in 1916 – a mere four years after the Titanic sank and two years into World War I. Of course, it goes without saying that she’s lived through some eventful times. And when in 2016 she reached the milestone of 100 years old, Ward decided to celebrate her birthday in a truly remarkable way.
Ward was born in Georgia to Thomas and Ida Green, during the height of WWI. In fact, the United Kingdom and the German Empire fought a naval battle in the North Sea the exact same day she arrived. Elsewhere, Woodrow Wilson, who died in 1924, was President of the United States at that time.
