98-Year-Old Grandma Finally Graduates from High School.

Chronicle/Laura Morton

Eighty years ago, Josephine Belasco was forced to quit high school to take care of her ailing sister and help support her family. Her only regret in life: never finishing high school.

Now, the 98-year-old grandmother of three finally got her high school diploma:

She worked for 36 years as an accountant, enjoyed a long and happy marriage, has a son and three grandkids, maintains her own top-floor apartment on Nob Hill and still goes out on the town with her friends for old-fashioneds and margaritas.

But 98-year-old Josephine Belasco always had one regret: dropping out of Galileo High School. Today she'll join hundreds of seniors of another sort as she dons a white cap and gown, carries a rose with the rest of the girls and -- 80 years later -- graduates from Galileo.
