Greta R. would like you to know one thing: she put her husband through college by working at a job giving away coupons and food samples at grocery stores. While she never went to college herself, she raised four children who all went on to attend Ivy League universities.

Greta is a mah-jongg champion and likes knitting and reading mysteries. A widow, she met her current boyfriend two years ago at Atria on the Hudson when “he came to my table and never left.”

The grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of one says her formula for longevity is “a good life, good genes and good luck.”
