EDITH DEAN, 1908-2014

Edith Dean was 105 years old at the time of this interview. Unfortunately, a few months after this interview took place, Mrs. Dean passed away on April 6, 2014. She was born in a suburb of Kansas City, Miss. and lived in the Kansas City area for most of her life. She was very active, and spent most of her time swimming or teaching children how to swim. She moved up to Lansing, Mich. to be with her remaining family in 1985. Mrs. Dean’s secret to living longer is by thinking positively and helping others when they need it, because good deeds always come back around. View her obituary here.
