Bernardo woman celebrates her 108th birthday with some advice



A Rancho Bernardo woman who recently celebrated her 108th birthday gave some advice on how to live a long life.

At The Remington Club in Rancho Bernardo, an assisted living home, Ginny Bergmann celebrated her 108th birthday.

According to her daughter Nancy Bergmann, Bergmann was born in New Jersey in 1914 but eventually made Rancho Bernardo her home after traveling nearly 17 times as a result of her husband’s work as an aeronautical engineer.

In 1986, after the passing of her husband in Australia, Ginny Bergmann relocated to Rancho Bernardo with her daughter.

“In her youth, she worked in New York City at her father’s design studio and was inspired by all around her, including the construction of the Empire State Building, window designs on Fifth Avenue, and Broadway theater,” Nancy Bergmann told CBS News.

Ginny Bergmann developed a passion for art by designing fabric and wallpaper for children’s rooms and studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York City.

“To this day, she insists on putting her stamp of approval on every outfit and accessory,” Nancy Bergmann said.

And how did she survive 108 years? Ginny shared her secrets to longevity.

Ginny Bergmann’s daughter Nancy Bergmann claimed that her mother’s attitude toward guilt is the key to her longevity.

“For instance, she may say innocently, “I don’t know what happened; IT did it!” instead of acknowledging a mistake. I haven’t worked out what IT is yet, “said Nancy Bergmann.

At Bergmann’s assisted living community, a celebration was held to honor her 108th birthday.
