Loreen Dinwiddie, passed away at age 109 in September 2012. She had been vegan since 1922. Ms. Dinwiddie lived in my town in Portland.
She credits her vegan diet, which she started in 1922 with her husband, for her longevity.
Loreen, a Seventh-Day Adventist, says she draws her diet from biblical teachings. She says: "It's all there in the Bible.”
If someone would have asked me who I would want to meet back then if I could meet anyone, I would have said, Loreen Dinwiddle.
Here she is--looking great at 108!
