God, beer and Johnny Walker Blue — How NJ’s Agnes Fenton lived to 112
ENGLEWOOD — Agnes Fenton, New Jersey's oldest resident, has died at the age of 112, the Record reports.
In an ABC World News report on her 105th birthday, Fenton told the program a doctor had given her advice after she suffered a benign brain-tumor: “Agnes, you must drink three Miller High Lifes a day.” She added a shot of scotch — usually Johnnie Walker Blue Label — herself.
A Record report around her 100th birthday said she is "no longer allowed her daily dose of booze, opting for favorite foods like chicken wings, green beans, and sweet potatoes instead."
It quoted Dr. Kenneth Wasserman, Fenton’s physician: “The few things she’s had wrong with her have disappeared in ways they should not have. Her health has been phenomenal. ... She’s completely, thoroughly amazing.”
Doreen Holder, one of Fenton's caretakers, told NJ.com at the time she was allowed a little sip of beer and Johnnie Walker Blue for her 110th birthday.
Fenton told the site there was one other secret to her longevity:
"I believe in church. I believe in God. That's all have to say," she said.
