NPR : Finding New Love, Late in Life

This is adorable and funny and you should take ten minutes to listen to it, because it will make you smile and possible laugh. And if it doesn’t, then you’re not human.

Four years ago, at the age of 76, Joannee Marks moved into the Hebrew Home for the Aged in New York.

There, she found a new life and something unexpected: a new love. Marks met Charlie Nucciarone in a class at the home. He calls her Cookie Jar. She says he’s the best friend she’s ever had. Independent producer David Miller interviewed Joannee last year and offers this story about rediscovering herself during the last years of her life.
