She has been a big part of the family business for over 40 years. Some of her favorite recipes are still being used in the restaurant.

Ms. Roberto has 11 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and 13 great-great-grandchildren.

“It is wonderful and our family is so big and we just keep growing generation after generation and we are just so blessed to still have her around,” Elizabeth Roberto, granddaughter, said.

Francis Roberto says the secret to her longevity is drinking ginger ale.
