The Glengarry News - - Front Page -

Au­gust 16, Chartwell Lan­caster res­i­dent Mar­garet Gandey cel­e­brated her 103rd birth­day with fam­ily, friends and staff of the re­tire­ment home. Born in 1914 in Montreal, where she worked for the Post Of­fice, she mar­ried her hus­band, Alan, and had four chil­dren. They moved to South Lan­caster in 1987. “Since mov­ing into Chartwell Lan­caster, Mar­garet keeps ev­ery­one smil­ing,” says Laura Wil­lett, Pro­grams and Sup­port Ser­vices Man­ager. “For a lady of 103, she is filled with so much joy and hap­pi­ness that she can eas­ily make any­one’s day.” Mrs. Gandey en­joys spend­ing her days with peo­ple and lis­ten­ing to mu­sic. When asked what she wanted for her birth­day, Mar­garet was quick to an­swer: “Pizza and cake.”
