Elderly Woman Becomes Good Neighbor

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com- She's the neighbor everyone would like to have living next door.

An 85-year-old Texas woman refuses to let her age get in the way of her giving spirit. Arrie Lou Duncan will do just about any type of community service for just about anyone. From baking for the local church, to cooking for friends and neighbors, this senior has even been known to play chauffeur for perfect strangers. Her benevolence started several years ago when she made a deal with God.

"I had cancer three times, and I just said, God, I'll try to do anything for anybody if you'll let me live," she said. "It's not nothing you do for yourself; it's what you do for others, cause life is very short."

Mrs. Duncan said her neighbors are amazed that she can still drive people around at her age, and they're even more amazed when she tells them she has never had a ticket in her life.
