CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- To say that Gerry Schmitt is an active senior is an understatement!

She is 80 years old and proud of it. Gerry and her husband Stan live at Plantation Estates in Matthews. Gerry enjoys all social media, but especially Facebook.

Her passion is restoring old prints and slides and making them look as close to the original as possible.

They could be damaged, faded; color or back and white. She's also experienced with tintypes and glass photos.

This morning on Larry's Look, Gerry showed us the process of restoring old pictures---even a fifth grade faded black and white snapshot of Larry, wearing a tie and sporting a buzz cut!

Here's her website:  http://users.psln.com/pete/Golden_Oldies.htm
