Meet Mary Belle Roach and Mae Belle Powell, better known as "The Wallace Twins" — a nickname, they derived for themselves based on their maiden names, which has stuck over the years.
According to Today News, These adventurous, life-loving centenarians have lived through some of the country's most challenging and exciting times.
And what makes their journey through life so inspiring is not only the memories the two have created, but also the inseparable bond they've formed with one another.
The twins were born during World War I on March 25, 1916 in Symsonia, Kentucky, where they live today. They were teenagers when the Great Depression shook the country. "It was really bad, we had nothing," Roach told TODAY. "The only monthly expense was home insurance."
After graduating from college, the duo married best friends they had grown up with,
, and accepted teaching jobs at Symsonia Elementary School. "You want to know what my salary was?" Powell, the older twin, asked over the phone. "It was $1 a day."
After returning from the war, the twins bought motor homes with their husbands and traveled the country together. These spontaneous ladies have now visited all 50 states and eight countries in Europe — not to mention taking six cruises together.
Today at 100 years old, nothing is slowing down this dynamic duo. And although both of their spouses have passed on, the twins are all about "go, go, go," according to Roach. The two walk for 30 minutes each day at a nearby gym, and you'll find them at the hair salon every Friday, always dressed alike
"We're together all the time; we've never been separated," said Roach. "That's all we know: to love each other."
"I need her all the time," Powell added. "We've had a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful life and still have it."
May God keep us all to be over a 100 in love with our family .
