She's 109 and still playing!

Attributes her longevity to music!

CHESTERFIELD, MO. - Ruth Stewart has experienced a lot of life. She was born on July 15, 1908. Teddy Roosevelt was the President, the first Model-T rolled off the assembly line, aviation was in its infancy, there was no indoor plumbing in most homes -- and no electricity either.

Her Mother was from Germany and her father from Poland. Born and raised in St. Louis, Ruth has experienced first-hand, things that many of us just read about in the history books.

“I saw the first street cars, we had movies without any talking, and we never had electricity either,” said Ruth.

For the past 23 years, Ruth has lived at the Friendship Village in Chesterfield. Earlier in the week, more than 100 friends and relatives celebrated her birthday. The Chesterfield mayor even declared the day in her honor.

That is great. I just seen a lady on my local news who was 94 and yanking a tiller plow around like a pro. I was amazed.
