"Oh I don't have a particular(kind), I eat everything," she said.
Her children and grandchildren who celebrated her 100th birthday with her say that might be her secret to a long life.
"She would eat everything. She wouldn't turn anything away we always had food to eat," her son David Ickes said.
Or it could be the exercise she got chasing around 4 kids who sometimes got into mischief.
"The only thing is, I couldn't outrun her if she had a switch," her son Robert Ickes said.
Her daughter from California agreed.
"She had a Phd in wooden spoon. She could whack you quick with a wooden spoon. She'd never beat you, but give you a whack to get your attention," her daughter Shirley Wombacher laughed.
Happy 100th birthday Francis Ickes.
