If you're looking for 92-year-old Mary Bochanis of Maryland, you'll probably find her doing volunteer work for the Red Cross – something she's been doing for 73 years, making her the longest-serving Red Cross volunteer in its history.

Mary served as a volunteer for many years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and continues to offer her services at The Children’s Inn at NIH (National Institutes of Health), a residential facility which houses families for free while their children participate in research studies and treatment.

Every Thursday and Friday, Mary helps serve food and coffee. But she also spends time sitting and talking with the families who enjoy her comforting presence.

Mary, who is a widow, met her late husband Gus while volunteering at Walter Reed. Gus was recovering from a leg amputation from an injury he suffered in World War II.   

Last October, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan presented Mary with a Lifetime Service Award. She says she may be 92 but she has no plans to stop anytime soon. (Huffington Post)
