Holy Redeemer Lafayette Celebrates 18 Centenarians

On September 21st, Holy Redeemer celebrated 18 resident centenarians during a special luncheon held at Holy Redeemer St. Joseph Manor. The honorees, residents of Holy Redeemer Lafayette and Holy Redeemer St. Joseph Manor ranged in age from 100 to 107.

District Director, Nick Himebaugh of Congressman Brendan Boyle’s office, presented congressional commendations to each centenarian, honoring their lifetime achievements. In addition to the commendations, honorees and their guests received a framed family photo taken right before the celebration and a booklet containing biographies of all the centenarians.

Esther Kennedy, 101, a resident of Holy Redeemer Lafayette credits her longevity to her father’s dietary rules. “My father was very strict on what we ate. We had fruits and vegetables, lots of that. Everything fresh,” Esther said. Her father lived to 105. Her sister had just turned 100 before she passed away. Esther’s life story is a very interesting one. In the 1940’s, Esther worked for Brewster’s, installing radios into naval airplanes. “The money was good,” Esther said with a laugh.

Congratulations to all of Holy Redeemer’s LifeCare Centenarians!
