One San Diegan grandmother celebrated her 105 birthday, said a CBS report.

Maria Falcon was born on June 26, 1915.

She celebrated with her descendants through Zoom this weekend.  

Among the attendance was her kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, and great-great-granddaughter.

Her oldest grandson is 59 years old, and her youngest is 1 year old.

According to the report, grandma Maria was 3 years old during the Spanish flu that killed 20 million people worldwide.

She also lived through the Great Depression and World War II, Vietnam, and many more.

Her daughter said, “Love for her family, being happy, not stressed. Basically love she feels brings her longevity.”   

She also relies heavily on her faith, living a life of service in San Diego and beyond, the report added.

Don’t Discount Sir Tom Moore

Speaking of centenarians, “Captain Tom” Moore, has come into prominence lately due to his deeds.

He raised almost £33 million ($40 million) for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) by taking laps of his backyard.
