The oldest person in Indiana . Ollie Roberts will be celebrating her 110th birthday on Sunday. Roberts was born in Garrett, Kentucky but lived 70 years of her life in Columbia City. She currently lives at Lutheran Life Village’s Pine Valley campus. She will be one of only 52 people in the world that will be 110 years of age or older. By the way, only one of those 52 are male. Those close to Roberts say that she is as sharp and perceptive as someone decades younger than her. She attributes her long life to both hard work as well as a deep belief in God.
