Yonkers woman, 90, says working has made life worth living
A 90-year-old woman in Yonkers says working five days a week has made her life worth living.
Josephine Balletta has worked at the Duane Reade on McLean Avenue in Yonkers for the last 30 years.
Balletta was inspired to start working after her husband died in 1984. She admits she was still grieving when she made the decision to apply for the job.
"I have to get out of the house and keep myself busy," says Balletta.
After beginning to work, Balletta says she started trying all types of new things. She even earned her driver's license at the age of 60.
"It's never too late, no matter what you are," says Balletta.
