She had four children with her husband, who died when he was 42. She lost two of her sons in what were supposedly drug-related killings, one in 1978 and the other a few years later.
Her daughter, who was concerned about her mother's health at the time, persuaded her to start jogging when she was 67.
Her formative years were spent in the Great Depression, when she had to work various odd jobs as her family's grocery store was forced to close. She was active in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s.
She and Fauja Singh are both known for their age-defying run prowess.
