Sybil Usan was the nation's oldest living Girl Scout. Sybil was a longtime feminist who spent more than 80 years in the Girl Scouts. She joined the Girl Scouts at age 10 in 1917 while living in Binghamton, N.Y.

She cared very deeply about young women being assertive members in society. In 1922, Sybil met Juliette Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts and lobbied for more exploring for girls. She wanted to do what the Boy Scouts were doing, hiking and camping. She played a big part in getting that done and the Girl Scouts became more active, especially after World War II.

Sybil often attened scouting meetings with her great-granddaughter, sharing her early memories. She was active and enthusiastic right up to her death. She had a life membership in the Girl Scouts.

One of her scouting uniforms is on display at the St. Louis County Historical Society in Duluth, Mn. In 2002 she was honored by the Girl Scout Council of Greater Minneapolis for her lifelong contributions to scouting.

In 1927, she married Isadore Usan, and moved to Duluth, Mn where they co-owned a auto body shop. She worked as the head bookkeeper for the business for more than 50 years. After her husband's death in 1963, Sybil continued to work at the body shop until she was 80. Sybil died of natural causes.
