Grandmother Skydives: Nancy Long Skydives With Son For Bucket List Wish
“Seniors can have fun. Just because you hit 60 or 70, the world doesn’t end. There is something you can do. Don’t give up on life. Go, go. Find something that you love and do it.” – Nancy Long.

Norcross, Georgia native Nancy Long celebrated her 80th birthday 3 weeks ahead in an unusual fashion: she went skydiving with her son.
Long, who will be 80 on October 5, said she doesn’t feel a day over 40 and she has the lifestyle to prove it. She dances with the Senior Follies on cruise ships and went para-sailing at 74. She said she won’t let old age hold her back.
The mother and grandmother finished her doctorate at 68.
“I’m a licensed Christian counselor. I’m an ordained minister and I just recently got my chaplaincy certification. So there’s always something. Something to do. There’s a new horizon always,” said Long.
