Yahoo! offers slideshow of seniors who continue working at extreme age

CNN and Yahoo! presented an honor roll of five seniors over 90 who stayed active in the workplace past the age of 90.

The oldest, Mildred Health still works as a reporter in Overton, NE at age 102.

Jack Borden still works as an attorney in Weatherton, TX at 101.

There were two female offices workers at 92 and 94, and a female yoga instructor at 91.

The link for the story is here.

An Oprah show once presented a Seventh Day Adventist in a “Blue Zone” in California still working as a heart surgeon at age 94.

As people live longer, some seniors are still able to continue working at extreme age. Some are self-employed, but in general employers have to want to keep them.
