A Greenwich woman celebrated turning 100 over the weekend, and is already looking forward to her next birthday.
Elizabeth Kontos was born in Pennsylvania, but came to Connecticut when she was 16. 
She says that living through the Great Depression taught her the value of saving money and making what you have last.
Kontos credits her long life to clean living and having a strong faith in God.
"Never smoked and never drank, maybe that helped," says Kontos. "I have good children, four children. The family great!"
Kontos says she is already planning her 101st birthday bash.
