Coming of Age: Gladys Flamer

  • Aired: 09/22/2011
  • 03:00
  • Rating: NR
Gladys Flamer likes to drive her Cadillac in Coatesville, PA. Nothing unusual about that, except that she's 103 years old and she uses her car to help people with no transportation. The centenarian retired from the work world when she reached 90, but has not stopped serving her community. She's active on City Council, with her church and in her neighborhood.
