Personal Quote:

[Interview, 1982] My father died when I was very young, and there was just my mother, my sister, and me. Were we a needy family? I always like what General Eisenhower said: 'We were poor and didn't know it.'


Became a centenarian on May 27, 2009 and her birthday was featured on The Today (1952) Show. See more »
