Prime Min­is­ter Hon. Dr. Kenny D. An­thony has is­sued a brief state­ment to com­mem­o­rate the birth­day of a par­tic­u­larly long-lived na­tional.

Said Dr. An­thony, “It is with great pride and plea­sure that I con­vey greet­ings to Neomie Richard­son on the oc­ca­sion of her 100th birth­day, to­day Jan­uary 19, 2016. The at­tain­ment of this ma­jor mile­stone is wor­thy of note, and I join my fel­low Saint Lu­cians here and abroad in recog­nis­ing this re­mark­able feat. Neomie and I share our birth­day month, so I am es­pe­cially pleased for her. We must con­tinue to trea­sure our older cit­i­zens, and do all in our power to build on the pat­ri­mony that they have handed down to us.”

Orig­i­nally from the vil­lage of Ca­naries, Neomie mi­grated to Canada in 1985, at the age of 69. The cen­te­nar­ian has six chil­dren, eight grand­chil­dren, and one great-grand­child.

Neomie Richard­son.
