It's a pretty good day when Grandma Mary can still talk about Beauty and the Beast and princess dresses with great grand-daughter Kennedy.
At 92, Mary McPherson is sharp as a tack.
Maybe it was all that farm fresh air back in rural Erie, North Dakota where she grew up on a farm, played girls basketball for Wheatland; half court, then went on to be a mom to 11 children.
These days, Mary is living with congestive heart failure; she stays with family, and is on Hospice care.
"Never thought about being 92 until it got here," said Mary McPherson.
This woman who has witnesses so much in her life, on Tuesday alongside a grand-daughter, voted absentee ballot.
She felt it was something she needed to do.
Mary, who attended a one room school, was born shortly after women got the right to vote, and on Tuesday, she decided that, as woman, in her 90's she would cast her Presidential vote for another woman, who could possible lead this country.
"I thought this would be my last chance," said Mary, "It is like a miracle to me, to be around and to see all these things going on."
Mary cooked in the rural schools for 40-years, served Doug Burgum his meals, he got her vote.
"Doug Burgum, definitely," said Mary.
Not far from where Mary sits, a John F Kennedy framed quote, "One person can make a difference," it reads, and everyone should try.
"It is amazing, hard to believe," said Mary.
For Mary, her very own election day ended like it started, a little playtime with a great grandchild.
"Doing a great job Kennedy," said Mary.
Mary took the responsibility of voting so seriously, she also volunteered as a poll worker at her precinct over the years.At
