'Laura Ingalls Wilder – wrote her first book when she was 65. She was depleted of resources by the great depression and friends encouraged her to write down her experiences and stories. That first book led to many others and would turn into the popular TV series, “Little House on the Prairie.”

Sister Marion Irvine – started running at age 47, when she was overweight and smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. She went on to qualify for the Olympic marathon trials at age 54.'

Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses – began painting at 76, after arthritis forced her to give up embroidery. She continued painting until  the age of 101 – long enough to see the canvases she had sold for $3 fetch prices north of $10,000.
