An Illinois great-grandmother is proving it’s never too late to try something new.
Mary Spaeth, 91, from Zion, dressed up as a bunny and trick-or-treated for the first time in her life this Halloween.
Spaeth, who used a walker to support her treat bag, was joined by all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
“She had a blast,” her daughter Christine Spaeth Richardson told InsideEdition.com. “She did take us kids but she never had an opportunity as a child.”
Richardson explained that her mom, whom they affectionately call “Baba,” grew up in Croatia, where trick-or-treating is not a common tradition. She moved to the United States following the Second World War and was sent to a nunnery to learn English.
When Halloween came around this year, Richardson and her family decided to bring her along on their festivities.
“I just thought seeing her grandkids and great-grandbabies would give her a boost and it did,” Richardson said.
