Alabama native, Susie Cooper, defies the odds at an impressive age of 97. As spry as ever, she chats easily about her various jobs over the years from working at the Navy Yard to the local school board. Despite her youthful nature, Ms. Cooper says her age and ailments have limited her once active lifestyle. Friends recommended Council on Aging of West Florida%u2019s services to her; where she is now a recipient of the Meals on Wheels program and has a Senior Companion.
