Its our pleasure to introduce you to another of our remarkable residents, Helen M. Not only is she a beloved resident at Pacifica Senior Living Northridge, but she is also a centenarian, having just celebrated her 101st birthday.
Born in Brooklyn NY, she started on the East Coast but eventually made her way to the West Coast where she has lived for some time. She married her husband Murray after they met in high school, and together they had 2 children, 4 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. In the time they had together they built a great family, most of whom all live within relatively close proximity to Helen in California.
Although Helen would describe herself as quiet and shy, that didn’t stop her for spending over 20 years as an elementary school teacher, an accomplishment that is particularly dear to her heart. In addition to her love for the classroom, she loved traveling and spent her time visitng places all across the globe. These days, she is happy to be in a cozy spot reading and enjoying one of her favorites snacks, cookies!
Helen has no doubt seen much in her 101 years and is a treasure to all who know her, and we are all better for encountering her. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve her at Pacifica Senior Living Northridge and look forward to celebrating 102 with her next year!
