What’s her secret?

Boasting amazing, age-defying good looks and a slim, trim figure, birthday gal Josephine Ingoglia turned 108 years young, celebrating the hallowed occasion by cutting the rug with generations of loved ones at the Shoreview Nursing Home.

Josephine was the belle of the ball as she held court with daughters Gina, Annie and Josephine, and a throng of grandchildren and great grandchildren, during her milestone party at the elder facility, 2865 Brighton 3rd Street, where she was feted in style and with honors – plus a huge iced cake. The spry elder, originally from Palermo, Italy, chatted up a storm with her well-wishers, prompting Director of Recreation Fran Brivic to quip, “She has a spirited personality; she continues to walk, talk, sing and even enjoys a little dancing!”

Happy Birthday, Josephine, and many more!
