Wilhelmine "Willie" LaRusso is quite petite compared to her tall offspring, but when it comes to making meatballs, the great-grandmother stands head and shoulders over everyone in the family.
At age 91, Willie still makes her "meatballs and gravy" every Sunday. An aunt once calculated that Willie has made more than 60,000 meatballs, which are the centerpiece of celebratory meals for her family, including eight grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Family members gush about how special they are, but Willie is humble about the praise.
