Edie Windsor, 83, the plaintiff in one of the same-sex marriage cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, shows "feistiness and courage [that] go against every single stereotype" of octogenarians, Maddy Dychtwald writes. Windsor, like dancer Anna Halprin and actress Betty White, is an example of those who haven't allowed the years to dull their participation in the activities and causes they love and stand for. In the process, they've served as role models for how younger generations should approach old age, Dychtwald writes.
