Marshfield twins turn 101


 MARSHFIELD (WAOW)-- Identical twins Helen Domine and Hazel Seeman have been sharing laughs since 1913.

"I'd just be lost without her. We are like two peas in a pod," said Domine as she was giggling.

And they've been that way for 101 years.

Helen and Hazel just celebrated a big birthday.

"They're just an inspiration to everybody," said Domine's daughter Barbara Dux.

Growing up in a family of eleven children, the ladies learned an important lesson early on in life.

"We always stick up for each other," said Seeman.

That hasn't changed.

Just ask Dux who now takes care of her mom and and aunt.

"They find everything funny," she said.

The two women live just blocks away from each other - one with her daughter, the other with her husband in assisted living.

But it hasn't always been that way.

Helen lived in Milwaukee for a while and Hazel in central Wisconsin.

Dux says she remembers the two women reuniting after being apart.

"They went right into a giggle. As soon as they would see each other they would giggle," said Dux.

The twins say they try to spend as much time as they can together, mostly laughing.

So it was no surprise when we asked them what their secret is to living a long life they answered with a big laugh.

"I wish I knew, don't you," said Domine
