At the age of 90, Suzy Ressler still comes into work every day.She owns Mrs. Ressler’s Food Products, which she founded in 1954 with her husband, Emerich, soon after they arrived to the United States. They started with only one employee by selling chopped liver and, in the decades since, expanded to selling more than 50 kinds of meat and employing more than 100 workers.

“I had a baby, and it was a difficult time,” Ressler said. “My husband was a wonderful guy — I was married 58 years — but he couldn’t find himself, and he said to me one day, ‘Maybe you could help me just this once.’ I’m the kind of person, when she feels that she’s needed, then she puts in 100 percent. That’s my nature.”
