Worcester’s on top of the world again!!!

WBZThe oldest living person in the United States is a Worcester resident. Clark University said Monday that alumna Goldie Michelson, who graduated in 1936, has become the oldest living person in America, and the oldest Jew in the world. Michelson is 113 years old and will turn 114 in August, according to Clark. She assumes the title after Susannah Mushatt Jones died in New York at age 116 last week. In an interview with Clark’s magazine in 2012, Michelson said she attributed her extraordinary longevity to walking

“I was a great walker — four or five miles every morning, weather permitting. I never used a car if I could walk,” she said. “One of the great joys of life was when I sold my car.”

She also said she never smoked or drank, but admitted to being a chocolate lover.

Ladies and gentlemen, Goldie Michelson is not only Worcester and America’s oldest living person, she’s also Worcester’s biggest badass. While Clark kids today are whining about student loans and safe spaces Goldie was busy surviving the Great Depression, the Holocaust, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and 1980’s dance music.

Absolutely love the fact that this woman lived this long by walking 4-5 miles every morning. No excuses. Meanwhile we’ve got able bodied Spencerites using the motorized scooter around Walmart because they’re too lazy to walk to the frozen section for Great Value brand mozzarella sticks.

I think the most amazing part about this story is the fact that she’s never smoked or drank. Kind of disappointed actually. I love it when people live this long and the first thing they tell you is how they smoked a pack of cigarettes a day. Nothing better than spitting in the face of conventional wisdom.

And what year was the Blarney invented? I didn’t realize you could graduate from Clark without stuffing your face with Blarney popcorn and getting shithoused for $13. Mr. Blarney must’ve founded the Blarney Stone after she graduated because there’s no way she would’ve lived this long if the Blarney was around back in dickity-four.

    If I ever had the pleasure of speaking with this starlet I suppose the first question I would ask her is does she want to be my internet girlfriend?

    This reminds me of that movie where the crazy professor makes a time machine out of a Ferrari so the kid can go back in time and take his mom to the prom.

    She makes me miss my great-grandma. GG had that same look in her eye, and she had some great stories. I hope Miss Goldie gets to hold the title for a few more years.

    What a great woman! Maybe the news media can do a documentary on her life or interview her. I hope Worcester has some way on honoring her.

    I would absolutely love to listen to her stories. That would be better than any history book could ever provide. God bless her!

        This reminds of the movie Titanic, The James Cameron movie made back in 1997, when it starts off with the older lady Rose Dawson telling her story as a survivor of the ship’s sinking. All of the nautical explorers were listening closely as she relives the incident.

        That would be me. Not moving a muscle and eyes ears wide open just hearing history first hand.

    The article I saw said she got her undergraduate degree in 1924 and her Masters from Clark in 1936. I would guess she married and has her family in those 12 years. Wonderful story and she sounds like a nice person.

    So she graduated college at 33 years old?

    • but seriously

      Thats not as uncommon as that she was an educated woman in 1936.
