STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- On Thursday night, the Augusta Health Hospice of The Shenandoah had their annual volunteer recognition dinner at the Frontier Culture Museum.

Audrey Bibb, 90, started volunteering for Hospice of The Shenandoah, at a time when most people are usually retiring -- at 60.

It was an opportunity she said she didn't think would last 30 years.

"No, I didn't think I'd live this long. I'm 90 years old so," said Bibb. "I didn't think I'd last this long. I've been blessed."

Hospice is a program with Augusta Health that helps care for patients during their last few weeks of life.

Bibb said her motto through it all has been staying active.

"To think that's really the name of the game. You got to stay active," said Bibb.

Lori Showalter who is the Hospice Volunteer Coordinator said Bibb is someone special.

"Having someone that's served 30 years and still full of spunk like Audrey, it's incredible," Showalter said.

Bibb has no plans of slowing down in the future.

"As long as I'm able, I want to be there." said Bibb.
