Mary Ann Barnett told her family on her 90th birthday in July that she wanted to go skydiving soon, The (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union reported Saturday.

In January, the woman's granddaughter, Tiffany Barnett, proposed the two take the jump together.

On March 17, two days after Tiffany Barnett's 30th birthday, the pair went to Skydive Jacksonville, based near Herlong Airport.

"I did it. I enjoyed it. And I'm ready to do it again," Mary Ann Barnett said.

Tiffany Barnett said she was a little worried for her grandmother going into the jump, but was happy they went. "She would be the icon that I think every grandmother should be," Barnett said. "There's not enough words to explain how great of a woman she is."

The skydiving company said the 90-year-old was their oldest skydiver at their Jacksonville location, but they had a 92-year-old jump at their Titusville location.

"Maybe I'll jump out then, too. Maybe I'll jump out at 104," she said.
