The Longevity Sisters

How's this for longevity?

Brother Sherman passed away when he was 70. Another brother, Roosevelt, died when he was a respectable 96 years of age.

But the sisters are still with us. The youngest, Eddie, is a spry 100 years old. The middle sister, Earlis, is still going strong at 101, while the eldest, Daisy, is now 104.

This is the only known case of three sisters all living to be 100.

Before retirement, both Daisy and Earlis were school teachers while Eddie was a seamstress and homemaker.

Just think of the history that these women have seen!
