Dunedin centenarian's secret to long life? Exercise

RECOMMENDED READING


Good for you | by Nova Beall

Garnet Victorine Stuler of Dunedin celebrated her 100th birthday at a party Dec. 8 at Queens Pizza with friends and family, including Allan Stuler of Clearwater, daughter Betty Jane Otero of Pensacola, granddaughter Leigh Ann Stuler of Palm Harbor and grandson Tracy Van Stuler of Clearwater. Stuler also has a second grandson, Justin LoFquest of St. Louis.

Garnet V. Roupe was born Dec. 5, 1912, to Katherine Conklin Roupe and Randall David Roupe. The family, which included four brothers and six sisters, lived in Washington, Pa.

Stuler's sister, Lois Friend, lives in Zephyrhills and is her only remaining sibling.

The former Miss Roupe was 24, when she and Louis Stuler, two years her junior, married May 12, 1937, in Maryland. The couple returned to live in Washington, Pa., for a time before they moved to Brownsville, Pa. A third move took them to Carmichaels, Pa., where Mr. Stuler passed away at the age of 48.

Stuler, a homemaker, took up ceramics as a hobby after her husband died. She came to Dunedin in 1990.

"Everyone just marvels because she takes no medications," Allan Stuler said of his mother. "Her doctor says to keep on doing whatever she's doing, because she's doing it right."

The centenarian's philosophy on living a long life is to exercise, a habit she practices daily.
