She Got a Driver’s License at 98 – Because SERVICE Mattered! Wow!
By Michael Harrell
At age 97, the state rescinded Evelyn’s license to drive. She never had so much as a parking ticket on her 80-year-old driving record. Determined to maintain her independence, and to act as a friend and servant providing rides to the grocery store to her fellow retirement home tenants, Evelyn went to the DMV. At 98, this woman doesn’t feel old or useless. She loves giving.
