105 year old still volunteering at a hospital

Dorrie Aber Noyek briskly maneuvers the halls of Memorial Regional Hospital picking up and delivering mail. There are no signs of slowing down — not even on this, her 105th birthday.

“Volunteering has been important to me as long as I can remember. I feel I want to give back," she said. "I think I’m very fortunate, very lucky, very blessed."

“From when I was quite young, all my life in England, anyway, we never had a car, not at all. And I’ve always walked. I’ve always walked miles.”

“When people hear how old she is they’re shocked, because nobody has seen a person of that age who is able to get around the way she does and who has the mental abilities she has. She lives completely on her own in a regular condo,” Steinhauer said.

“Not too much fat, too much sweets," she said. "Although to this day I eat cookies every day.” Her favorite kind is chocolate chip.

1. Wow. She's an inspirational person.


There are people half her age who are useless blobs, sitting on the couch and watching football. People like this are an asset to society.
