105-year-old says secret to longevity is to follow doctor’s orders

by Jayna Smith

 Ruth Muller just celebrated her 105th birthday. This likely makes her the oldest person in the City of Calais, possibly even in the state.

Born in Germany on January 3, 1915, Ms. Muller immigrated to the United States with her parents and two sisters through Ellis Island. Like others at that time, her parents were in search of a better life for her family. Ms. Muller was eight years old and did not speak a word of English.
