Anyone with a sibling, probably remembers sharing rooms, clothes and time with their brothers and sisters. It's something that usually ends in adulthood, but for four Duluth sisters that's not the case.

Four sisters are back under the same roof at St. Eligius Health Center in Duluth proving family bonds can truly stand the test of time.

"We get to see each other and talk," sister Florence Strom said. "We still love each other and we all know it."

Strom is the youngest at 91 years old. Her sister Lillian Lund is 104 and Dorothy Wotczak is 101. They're sister-in-law Theresa Anderson is 93.

"I was just always a part of the family," Anderson said.

These ladies now enjoy sharing stories over coffee.

"They used to have dance halls," Wotczak said. "We would go Friday, Saturday and sometimes on Sunday."

While they've traded in their dancing shoes for a pair of wheels, they still remember the good ol' days like yesterday.

"My mother was an angel," Wotczak said.

"We were a very close family," Strom said. "We had a lot of fun together. Like any family we had disagreements, but nothing that made us stay away from each other."
