‘Fun-loving’ Riverview Manor resident turns 103

Home honours Anne Graham with cake, best wishes

Possessing more than a century of life experience, Anne Graham blew out the candles on her 103rd birthday cake this week.

The Riverview Manor resident was showered with attention Feb. 13, which included best wishes, singing and a cake.

“She definitely enjoyed the experience,” says Sherry Baldwin, life enrichment co-ordinator (LEC) at Riverview Manor.

Riverview Manor resident Anne Graham turns 103.

“She was herself, laughing.”

Graham, who has lived at the Peterborough long-term care home for at least eight years, is described as a gregarious person.

“Her personality is personality-plus,” Baldwin says.

“Anne is a giggler. She’s an easy-going, fun-loving person. She can laugh with anyone,” Baldwin says.

Riverview has hosted a special celebration for Graham’s birthday every year since she passed the century milestone.

Back in February 1914, during the month and year Graham was born, the U.S. Congress approved an anti-immigration law and the New York Giants and Chicago White Sox played an exhibition baseball game in Egypt.

Composer George Kleinsinger (Tubby the Tuba) was also born on Feb. 13, 1914.
