Schuyler said she enjoys living on Main St. in Warrensburg, because of the variety of services close by.

“When I go into the funeral home, I tell him I’m not ready yet,” she laughed, attributing her long life to frequent exercise and eating peanut butter daily, as well as crediting God.

Hogan disputed the peanut butter, noting Schuyler’s engaging spirit and love of life.

“She’s lots of fun, creative and dynamic,” Hogan said.
