Anne Schwartz turned 102 years old on Wednesday, October 18, 2017. Her celebration that day was a beach theme to incorporate her favorite thing, going home to Atlantic City, NJ. Her cake marked her 102nd year with blue candles representing the ocean. Her favorite entertainer, Rachel Demasi, sang her favorite song, God Bless America by Kate Smith, as well as fun beach songs. Anne’s family was at the celebration and brought pictures from their life.
Anne believes the secret to her longevity is a good family life. Her parents were very devoted and they always ate dinner together as well as enjoyed many activities together. Anne has always loved to play on the beach, in the water or on the bay as well as outdoor living, roller skating and even enjoyed working constantly. Anne’s mother and paternal grandfather believed that women should be educated along with the men. She graduated from Atlantic City High School and spent a year at Temple University. She was married 60 years before becoming a widow. She has two children, four grandsons and four great grandchildren.
After the celebration, in honor of Anne who is both hard of hearing and sight, the Association for the Blind joined Spring Hills staff for a conversation about blindness. They brought some assistive technology devices and there was a chance for everyone to ask questions.
