PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A 95-year-old retired nun spent her last day of volunteering by reading with kids at Menlo Park Elementary in Portland.

Laura Sewell has been tutoring second graders one-on-one for the past 12 years.

After turning 95, Sewell's insurance went up so she decided to stop driving. Her last day of volunteering at Menlo Park Elementary was Thursday.

Even though Sewell may not be volunteering at the elementary school anymore, she said she is not just going to sit around the house.

Sewell is now launching into a new project to remodel the library at her church.
