Yonkers woman celebrates 105th birthday
A Yonkers woman who has been alive since the days of President Woodrow Wilson recently celebrated her 105th birthday.
Theresa Tortovo was born in 1912, the same year the Titanic sank.
Tortovo celebrated her birthday milestone with her family at Rory Dolan's Bar Tuesday.
She still lives at home with her only child, and says she doesn't give a second thought about her age.
"I never gave death a chance to catch me," she says.
Her family says she's been growing her own organic fruits and vegetables in her own garden for as long as they can remember, and has never taken any medication her entire life.
She also never had a car so she always walked to her destination.
