On Sunday, Anna Stoehr celebrated her 112th birthday, making her the oldest Minnesotan and the 30th oldest person in the world.
Stoehr, who still lives at home alone, has continued to live independently despite her age. "Last spring, Stoehr's family persuaded her to hire an aide to come help clean twice a week" the Star Tribune reported. "That lasted a week, when Stoehr decided it was a waste of money to do what she could for herself."
According to the Gerontology Research group, Stoehr is on the list as the 14th oldest American Supercentenarian.
