Gutsy great-grandmas jump out of plane for charity

6:11PM BST 25 May 2012

Two daring great-grandmothers from Ohio have proved that age isn’t a barrier if you want to throw yourself out of an airplane at 10,000 feet. Marjorie Bryan, 83, and Marianna Sherman, 82, parachuted at the Allen County Airport in Lima to raise money for Blue Star Mothers of America and its local veterans’ food pantry. The adventurous octogenarians made their tandem jump with retired Sgt. 1st Class Michael Elliott, who has almost 10,000 jumps to his credit, including two with former President George H.W. Bush. Upon landing, Bryan offered to jump with the former president on his 90th birthday in 2014. “I’ll be 85, and I want to go with him,” she said.
