Not many people make it to 90, much less 95. But Ms. Lorene DeLisle did.

Today, Nov. 11, is DeLisle’s 95th birthday. She spent Saturday Nov. 6 celebrating at her home with her large, loving family.

DeLisle and husband Roger were blessed with seven children, six of whom still live. She has five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

“I live alone, and people have asked me ‘Don’t you get depressed?’” Said DeLisle. “And I say, ‘How can I be depressed when I have been so blessed?’”

Life has been beautiful for DeLisle, and she lives it one day at a time, enjoying it to the fullest.
