Dorothy Hoffner, a resident at Brookdale Lake View in Chicago, completed a feat that few people, especially people her age, accomplish: skydiving over the Illinois landscape. When the 101-year-old was asked why she wanted to skydive, she said, "It looks like fun!" 

Dorothy and friends jumped out of their plane with SkyDive Chicago on July 3rd. 

After (safely) landing in her yellow jumpsuit, she exclaimed, "That was wonderful! The best part was floating over the landscape." 

Dorothy is a true example of defying the stereotype of aging - congratulations Dorothy!
