Betsy Quinter is has been a faithful subscriber to the Dayton Daily News for almost seven decades. At age 87, she is also one of the most active in her community.

“My morning coffee wouldn’t be the same without my paper,” she said.

Quinter remembers a time when her family started receiving the paper and how some of her kids began working to make sure other residents got their paper everyday.

“My husband and I have had a newspaper subscription since 1950 or 1951,” she said. “We had six kids - three boys and three girls. Our three boys all had paper routes. I think the oldest may have had a Journal route.”

Quinter has never failed to continue her loyalty to local journalism over the years and enjoys her paper.

“I’m a widow now and live at St. Leonard retirement community in Centerville,” she said. “I still have my subscription and I enjoy it so much.”

Keeping active is a big part of her life now. She just captured first place in the 85-and-older female division in the 15th annual St. Leonard 5K run/walk race.

The race is designated as a fund-raiser for the St. Leonard Foundation, which exists to foster a spirit of generosity and to provide support for demonstrated needs.
