LIMA, Ohio (AP) — Two great-grandmothers in their 80s have parachuted from a plane to raise the money for a veterans' food pantry in northwest Ohio.

The Lima (LY'-muh) News reports that 83-year-old Marjorie Bryan and 82-year-old Marianna Sherman parachuted Saturday at the Allen County Airport in Lima. They made tandem jumps with retired Sgt. 1st Class Michael Elliott, who has done tandem jumps with former President George H.W. Bush.

The women parachuted to raise money for the local chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America and its veterans' food pantry. Blue Star members are mothers whose children have served in the military.

Bryan is from Lima. Sherman is from Kenton. Bryan likes parachuting so much she wants to accompany Bush if he jumps for his 90th birthday. She would be 85.
