105-year-old meets great-great-granddaughter for the first time as 5 generations meet

Today’s world can be so intense and full of distractions that we forget to spend time with those most important to us.


Maintaining healthy relationships with family member is, of course, of paramount importance. After all, family are usually the folks that have your back no matter what.

Even so, making the time to see distant relatives can sometimes, unfortunately, be something you pass up on.

Not so for Annie Berry, who celebrated her 105th birthday in January 2019.

Barry was recently visited by all FIVE generations of her family at the Genesis Larkin Chase Center in Bowie, Maryland. It was time for Barry to welcome the latest addition to her huge clan: her great-great-granddaughter, Olivia.


As per WUSA9, Berry laughed and said Olivia was “cute like Grandmama.”

Berry was born in Meridian, Mississippi, in 1914, a period in history where racism and segregation were rife. She recalled picking cotton and shucking corn during her early days, and she’s seen the world change several times.


Of course, the world Olivia will grow up in is markedly different to the one Berry faced (which is unsurprising given their 105 year age gap).

Berry attributes her long life to “obedience to the Lord,” while she set out a clear line of instruction for baby Olivia: “I’d like for her to be kind and loving and do what mother says to do.”

Well, Annie Berry certainly deserves some respect and praise. How wonderful it is that Olivia will grow up knowing that she got to meet her great-great-grandmother!
