According to Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mary Mitchell, Susie Lewis, 106, of Maywood, almost looks too good to be true.
When Mitchell, a former Maywood resident herself, visited the Maywood home where Lewis has lived for half a century, the columnist encountered a woman whose face “is virtually untouched by the two scourges of time: wrinkles and sag” and who “has the peaceful look of a contented child.”
“In her living room,” Mitchell writes, “a lifetime of family photos fills the tops of accent tables. Nestled among pictures of her daughters and sons, nieces and nephews, is a framed photo of the former first family.”
