The Guinness Book of World Records recognized 95-year-old Winifred Ann Kelly as the world’s oldest dwarf, but her accolade didn’t come with any special treatment. In fact, she was immobile, unable to leave her home in Strongsville, Ohio, without help. Little did she know, a group of strangers had caught wind of her predicament. And one day they showed up on her lawn, ready to change her life.
Kelly, known as Winnie to loved ones, grew up in Parma and Cleveland, Ohio. She gave little attention to the fact she was shorter than her classmates. “It never even occurred to me that I was different. When I was in grade school, I was one of the gang,” she told Fox 8.
