Ana Pinzón celebrated her 104 birthday on July 25, 2013. Ana Rosa Pinzón was born in Colombia (Madrid Cundinamarca) on July 25, 1909. She has been living half of her life in Culver City with her daughter Elizabeth. Ana has not slowed down a bit, continuing to go five days a week to Olympus ADHC (a senior club that provides activities).
After a morning of exercising (and of course socializing), Ana goes home to rest a little and begins her afternoon crocheting---an activity she says keeps her mind, eyes and spirit sharp. Ana still makes people laugh with her unique sense of humor.
Back in 2009, when she turned 100 she said, “tranquility is the elixir of youth.” Yes indeed, Ana found the elixir of youth. Every day Ana is a happy and living the present in peace.
