Kentucky native Virginia Runge lived her life to the full until her dying days. The eccentric grandmother of nine was fond of sky-diving, traveling, and adding a little something special to her oatmeal every morning - Bailey’s Irish cream.
At the tender age of 85, Runge planned her first sky-driving trip. She completed two more after that - one while she was 87, another at 89 - and was gearing up for another one at 91 years old, despite doctors warnings.
“I've been blessed so much. I really have,” Runge told WDRB while planning her fourth dive at the age of 91.
____________“It still scares me but you get over it,” she said of skydiving. “As soon as that parachute opens, you're just going to float on down.”
