We always wonder about longest living people and want to know what their lifestyle must have been? I thought, in Lifestyle news4you, I must introduce this series where I can talk to our long living Grandmas and Grandpas to tell us the secrets of their living so long and still going strong. Keeping themselves healthy, happy and physically active. 

It is not just my curiosity but everyone of you there would want to know if there is something 
we can learn from them. I personally think, their happiness comes from completely different thinking,  and that is what we must hear from them.

We also have Grandmas and Grandpas who are living healthy and happy life after 75, 80 and even 90 years. I would like to have a chat with all of them through this platform which talks about healthy lifestyle, healthy and happy living.

Neva's son-in-law, Tom Wickersham, observes, “It didn’t hurt that she worked hard all her life and ate hearty and healthy meals prepared from meat, dairy products and vegetables produced on the farm.” Walter Morris, Neva’s youngest son thinks her secret is her passion for fast cars, as witnessed by her 80-year accident-free driving record
She is a member of PEO Chapter OH, a 60-year member of Collegiate United Methodist Church, and for 75 years was active in Eastern Star. She also enjoyed singing in women’s choral groups, including one in Gilbert and the Story County Women’s Chorus under the direction of Max Exner. Neva particularly loves to sing “You Are My Sunshine.
Later years
At age 99 she moved from her farm home to North Grand Care Center and later to North crest Community. Although facing hearing and vision challenges, Neva still enjoys visiting with her close relatives and spending time with her eight grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, several great-great-grandchildren.
