A look at the remarkable lives of the elderly

 

86-year-old not bothered by construction noise

Some may say 86-year-old Edith Macefield is stubborn. But maybe she just has perspective. She has refused to sell her 108-year-old Seattle home to developers for $1M, now construction of the new multi-story project has started all around her.

"I don't want to move. I don't need the money. Money doesn't mean anything," she said.

And the construction crew? Far from being annoyed, they see her as a grandmotherly figure. The site superintendent even drives her to the doctor and brings lunch for her. But what about all the noise coming from the construction, surely it must drive her crazy!

"I went through World War II, the noise doesn't bother me," she said.
