This is Lucille from Henderson, Nevada who recently turned 104 on June 27th. The Las Vegas Sun wrote and article about her (she deserves it right??) which is how I found out about her.  She attributes her longevity to good nutrition, good genes, and a long, strong marriage.  Her husband passed away 3 years ago at the age of 99.  Soon after that she moved into the assisted living.  Though you can see from her photo she still looks pretty spunky.  And I love that sweater!!

My favorite part of the article is when we find out she graduated as valedictorian of her high school graduating class of 2.  Everyone is a winner in that situation!

You can read the entire article: Woman, 103 attributes longevity to genetics, clean living here.
