Do you have an aunt or family member that still drives when they are ninety + years old.? Do they drive in the snow? Do they do their own grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning? Oh, don't forget the weekly hair salon appointment. If you answered yes to any of these questions, read on.

This is a true story. My aunt lives in the Snow Belt and still drives. She only drives to the Grocery Store, Doctor Appointments, etc., but she drives. She does not have a garage and her only hang up is she has to call a friend to remove the snow and ice from her car before she can drive away. She is a truly remarkable woman and completely independent.

The strangest part of this story is my aunt never learned how to drive until she was in her forties (40’s). She always relied on her husband and other family members to chauffer her. Now she says, “I do not know what I would have done if I would have never learned how to drive.”

My aunt was married at the young age of twenty-two (22) and was married for fifty-six (56) years to the same man. She is now a widow and had to adjust to life alone. My aunt and uncle lived for over forty (40) years in a house where they raised their family. When they reached senior citizen years they moved into an apartment. This is where my aunt still resides.

MY AUNT STILL DOES HER OWN COOKING, CLEANING, AND ERRANDS.

She is the mother of two daughter’s, four grandchildren and four great grand children. Her older daughter visited often but when she wanted to visit them she would hop on a bus and sit for several hours. Now she says, "If they want to visit me they know where I live."

On Thanksgiving her youngest daughter packed up a complete turkey dinner and headed for her mother’s house one hundred (100) miles away. Her daughter did not want her mother to spend the day alone.

My aunt is definitely the matriarch of my family out living her only sibling my mother. She is in wonderful health except for Emphysema and breast cancer. Both these diseases you get from smoking and smoking she did, unfiltered cigarettes for years until she stopped – cold turkey.

I hope she lives for many more years.

Thank you for reading my article. Please feel free to read my other numerous articles.
