Elizabeth Stefan of Norwalk, Connecticut, celebrated her 111th birthday this month, which places her among the top 50 oldest living people in the world. In the words of her 80-year-old daughter-in-law, "Holy cow, that's remarkable."
Tara Stefan, the wife of Stefan's grandson, said they cannot explain why Stefan has lived so long.
"Everyone says, 'Oh my God, What does she do? What does she eat?'" Stefan said. "I say, 'I don't know, stuffed cabbage, that's her favorite dish.' You can't say what she did or didn't do that made her like that." [Link]
