Resident celebrates 100th birthday

Margaret Alice Roos celebrated her 100th birthday with the Golden Hill staff and many friends April 17 at the Golden Hill Rehab Pavilion.

Family provided a display of pictures of Roos throughout her 100 years. She also recently celebrated her birthday with friends and family at Dante’s in Stratford.

Roos was born April 17, 1916, in Oil City Pennsylvania, and raised in the Bronx, N.Y.

She has been an avid Jeopardy viewer for years and enjoys crossword puzzles, but her favorite pastime by far is watching the New York Mets, her daughter, Marge Lauro, said.

Roos said enjoying family time has been the highlight of her 100 years, and that living a long life gives a person more time to see and understand the differences between right and wrong.
