Centennial Sisters’ secret to long life?

Thelma Susewind is 101 years old.

Her sister Doris Rounds is 104

Thelma lives in Norfolk, Virginia. Doris lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

It’s been several years but the two recently met in Rhode Island for a much needed visit.

So, what is the secret to these Centennial Sisters’ longevity? 

Doris chimed in saying “Living on a farm in (Seekonk, Massachusetts) and “eating fresh vegetables. And we had plenty of exercise because we had bicycles that we could ride all day long and not worry about cars because there were so few of them.”

“And don’t smoke!” Thelma exclaimed.

BTW: One of their favorite things to do when they get together -other than talk- is to eat lobster – a family tradition since their childhood in Massachusetts.  😊
