Carlson, born in 1903, is believed to be the oldest woman in West Virginia. Family members, including daughter-in-law Barbara Carlson, helped her celebrate with a birthday cake and balloons. Her other son, Frank Carlson, lives in Houston. Carlson, originally from Oil City, Pa., spent most of her life as a homemaker and a cook. Six generations of her family are still living.
