A 35-year resident of St. Martin’s Home for the Aged, Catonsville, which is run by the Little Sisters of the Poor, turned 100 years old. Imelda Smith commemorated the milestone birthday with the Little Sisters, residents, staff and friends in the St. Martin’s Home auditorium.
Mrs. Smith is a lifelong resident of Maryland who worked as a nurse in the Baltimore area for many years. She delights in telling stories, and will happily entertain a listener with a chorus of “My Wild Irish Rose.”
Most afternoons the senior keeps busy as one of the greeters in the home. She still loves a good party, and she is especially fond of steamed crabs and beer, reports Meg Ducey, director of development for Little Sisters of the Poor.
