(S.D.)- South Dakota's Oldest Resident Dies At 113

SALEM, S.D. (AP) - The woman who held the distinction of being South Dakota's oldest resident for four years has died. The South Dakota Health Care Association says Beryl Kapaun died Wednesday in Salem at the age of 113. State Demographer Mike McCurry tells the Argus Leader newspaper that Kapaun is the last South Dakotan to live in the 1800s, 1900s and 2000s. Kapaun credited her longevity to family genes, clean living and never overeating at meals. The association says 107-year-old Dagmar Keehn, of Flandreau, is now South Dakota's oldest resident.
