From dancing to lifting weights, Mrs. Con Mac is a dedicated member at the YMCA family center in Weston. She comes in seven days a week to exercise at her Silver Sneakers cardio class along with her daughter. And Thursday at The Y was not just any day—she celebrated 104 years of life.
“I think she’s a wonderful, wonderful image to follow. We’re so proud of her,” said her friend, Judi Greenburg.
Con Mac came to the United States in 1975 from Vietnam. As a widow, she was forced to raise her two children on her own. She says making her family happy is what’s helped her stay healthy and live longer.
Her daughter, Bich-De Lu, says Con Mac lives longer because she knows how to relax and have time to watch the moon.
With nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, she always pushes that education comes first.
Now, five of her grandchildren are doctors and one is a pharmacist. Her grandchildren say she has been an inspiration throughout their lives.
