Maine’s 103-year-old “Lobster Lady” has signed up for a 95th year at the job, NEWS CENTER Maine reported.  

Virginia “Ginny” Oliver, known as Maine’s oldest lobster harvester, began hauling traps before the Great Depression, at 8 years old, with her father and older brother.

Oliver, who celebrated her 103rd birthday this week with friends and family, will still lobster for the 2023 season, according to the outlet. 

To mark her birthday, Oliver gathered at the Rockland Historical Society, the outlet reported.

“Virginia, who still does her own cooking, didn’t have to bake this cake, but she did slice it for members of the Society and her daughter and three sons,” Wayne Gray, who attended the celebration, told NEWS CENTER Maine.
