The remarkable life, personally and professionally, of Doris Drucker, who died on October 1 at 103; represents an inspiration for healthy, productive aging. She and Peter Drucker were married for 68 years, until his death at 95 in 2005. They had four children and six grandchildren. Many of the details of her life (including writing, editing, work as a registered patent agent, and as an entrepreneur) are captured in some of the terrific tributes now online, which also describe her devotion to exercise and competitive sports:

In 2004, I interviewed her and wrote a USA TODAY review of her wonderful memoir, Invent Radium or I’ll Pull Your Hair.
