At 104-years-old, June Horowitz still had the magic

July 20, 2018

Last month we reported on the sad passing of June Horowitz, the first woman to serve as president of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. She was 104 years old.  

Randy Vander Wal, the current president of IBM Ring 211, was on hand to witness one of Horowitz’ last tricks, one learned during a nigh century-long romance with the art.  

MLive, the channel that uploaded the video, had this say:

June Horowitz, one of magic’s most well-known and beloved magicians, performs a card trick when she was 104-years-old. Horowitz, who known for her sense of humor, wit, intelligence and willpower, helped shatter glass ceilings for female magicians. She started performing magic when she was around 6 or 7, sometime around 1920. She died at 104 on June 27, 2018.
