Technically retired, Sr. Lois spends her time at the convent in Sparkill, New York, where she makes cards for her fellow nuns in the infirmary.

The one-time teacher, known for her acute intellect, says her secret to longevity is living well, eating well and living a life of peace. Peace is something she says she will always pray for — peace in the world and peace in the hearts of others.
