About this Article

The world was a very different place 105 years ago. Women couldn't vote, the U.S. hadn't been tested by either world war, TVs hadn't been invented and Lois Mary Arbanas had just been born. Arbanas, who celebrated her 105th birthday Dec. 1 has lived through the world changing many times over, but said her longevity doesn't seem that profound to her. "The years came on so gradually," she said.
