  4. Party on, Zora. Torrance woman celebrates 105th birthday SundayRead the original story w/Photo

    Sunday May 24 | The Daily Breeze

    Torrance resident Zora Selliken, a former high school teacher, retired at age 95 from a second career with her son's firm that entailed traveling the nation administering medical board review courses. A couple of years ago Selliken and her younger sister Vida Trout - at a time when the pair's average age was 101 - took an Alaskan cruise together where they were a hit with fellow passengers and crew, said her son, Joseph Selliken, 69. So it's perhaps not surprising that on Sunday Selliken and her 103-year-old sister - who is flying from her Portland, Ore., home for the occasion - will mark her 105th birthday with a party at Torrance's Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd after Sunday service.
