Gulfport woman celebrates 100 years of life

A woman from Gulfport celebrated a huge achievement by hitting triple digits.

Ethelyn Mozingo, lovingly known as memaw by her 14 grand and great grandchildren, just turned one hundred years old. She spent the day surrounded by friends and family.

Mozingo grew up in Petal before settling on the Coast. At one point, she held a record for most volunteer hours at Memorial Hospital, a clear sign of her love for others. Son Ron Mozingo said, “It’s just incredible to have your mother, in my case, for 77 years. The person who loved me most in my life is that woman there. She’s wonderful.”

Ethelyn said, “I love that, I love every one of them. And I’m glad to see them. Just behave yourself and live right is all I know to say.”
