ONE of King Ed­ward Me­mo­rial Hospi­tal’s pa­tients is cel­e­brat­ing 100 years of longevity. Irene Ni­cholas was born on July 22, 1918, at the orig­i­nal KEMH at Har­vey House just two years after the hospi­tal opened. Mrs Ni­cholas has lived on the same street in Queens Park her whole life, com­ing home from the hospi­tal to one house and mov­ing five doors down years later with her own fam­ily. Mrs Ni­cholas has three sons, nine grand­chil­dren and eight great-grand­chil­dren, and cel­e­brated her 100th with a fam­ily party on July 22.
