A bride at 103!

I love Facebook because comments are often short and clever and just enough. Yesterday my Facebook friend, Penny Simonson, posted this. I wanted more! Here's what she wrote:
"Today I went to the funeral of a lovely woman to whom I am only related by marriage. Ellen was 105 years old - and the room was filled with the myriad of relations that came from her life: She was widowed 7 years into her first marriage; and was then married for 28 years to her second husband; after he passed away, she spent 33 years with her third. In 2010, when she was 103 years old, she married for the fourth time. She died a bride, which we all found just loved. A dear woman; a life well lead."
