To the tunes of her favorite artist Frank Sinatra, Molly Gruber ushered in birthday number 105.
“Everybody’s asking me questions and taking my picture, it’s very funny,” Molly Gruber says.
The Minnesota native has blown out a lot of candles in her 105 years, and for the last 83 of them, her daughter Beverly’s been by her side.
“Truthfully I can’t even imagine being without her,” Beverly Teitelbaum says.
Molly says the key to a long life, is healthy living.
“I never drank, and I never smoked,” Molly says.
And with a glass half full outlook on life, those who know her best, say it’s possible, she’ll live to be 110.
“I don’t know why not,” Molly laughs, “I can’t say I’ll be happy about it, but it could happen.”
