On December 8, 2022, Mrs. Grace LePane celebrated her 107th birthday.
Grandma Grace is full of life. She is always elegant and wears pretty necklaces and golden hoop earrings.
She spent much of her long life in New York and moved to Oviedo at the age of 66.
She decided to move there because her family used to vacation there.
Despite being an active and cheerful woman, her life hasn’t always been happy.
She faced a major depression as she had to endure two losses, first her seven-year-old son, and then her husband.
According to Grace, she managed to overcome the crisis thanks to her optimism.
Mrs. LePane loves her family, her children, and her grandchildren, who also love and respect her.
When asked about her favorite pastimes, she jokes that she doesn’t enjoy doing anything.
However, her family disagrees. Her grandma runs errands, helps with cooking, and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren.
On her 107th birthday, several people from different cities in the United States traveled to celebrate this precious day together.
“I am so happy to have all my loved ones here,” said the centenarian.
When relatives ask her about the secret to her longevity, the woman responds that she has a long life because her family is always with her.
And to lead a long life, one must also always be in a good mood, she adds.
According to those close to Grace, she laughs very often, and her sense of humor helps her stay young.
“Kindness, gratitude, and joy, that’s what matters to a person,” Grace LePane likes to repeat.
