Mrs. Betty (Mary) Delaney and Mrs. Maria DiRico joined the elite ranks of centenarians and celebrated their 100th birthdays on May 25th and May 31st, respectively. Family members, friends, and others gathered to honor Delaney and DiRico at their residence, Greenwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Wakefield, MA, with plenty of fun and memorable photographs and refreshments. One in 26 baby boomers is now expected to live to 100; many more will reach the mid- to late-90’s. In recent interviews and surveys, centenarians share seven secrets to living a long and happy life: a positive attitude, diet, exercise, faith, clean living, a loving family, and, lastly, genetics!
