LongeviQuest is delighted to announce that Idaho’s oldest known living person turned 111 years old. Sally Ashman’s family celebrated her milestone with a lobster dinner. She is currently the oldest known living person in the U.S. state of Idaho.
Sally Ashman was born into a prominent family in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, on November 23, 1912. Her grandfather owned a significant portion of the land before development, and her father served as the first president of Johnstown Bank and Trust. Ashman excelled in her studies, graduating as valedictorian from both Cochran Junior High School and Johnstown High School. Her academic achievements continued at Bryn Mawr College, where she earned a cum laude degree in 1934.
Ashman got married in 1936, and the couple had three children. Her husband would later become the head administrator of Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital. While her husband dedicated his career to the medical facility, Ashman devoted many years to volunteering there.
Ashman remained independent until she turned 100. She lived in Florida full-time until 2012, when she relocated to Idaho Falls, Idaho, to live with her daughter.
