93-Year-Old Nurse Retires After 72 Years on the Job
Alice Graber, 93, retired after 72 years as a nurse.

A 93-year-old South Dakota woman has retired after 72 years as a nurse.

In June, Alice Graber celebrated her retirement from the Salem Mennonite Home in Freeman, South Dakota, where she worked for over 20 years, according to an ABC News story.

Graber was the oldest nurse in South Dakota, according to Shirley Knodel, director and administrator at the home, who was told by someone at the South Dakota Board of Nursing.

To keep busy, Graber said she will continue her volunteer work at the nursing home, where she brings meal trays to the residents and feeds them.
