Residents, personnel and family members who attended enjoyed a delicious dinner and cake.

Stagg said that her grandmother’s longevity may be contributed to the fact that all through her life she has always been loving, giving, and thinks of others before herself.

&uot;The gift of service is her middle name,&uot; she said. &uot;Her favorite Bible verse is found in the Psalm 91 and I always read it to her when I visit.&uot;
