Fam­ily and friends gather for Crow­ley’s 100th birth­day

The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE - Staff re­ports

Fam­ily and friends wished to an­nounce the joy and ex­cite­ment they had over the past 100 years en­joy­ing the life of Louise Crow­ley, who cel­e­brated a cen­tury in Cedar­town this past week at Cedar Val­ley Nurs­ing and Re­hab.

Crow­ley is a res­i­dent and na­tive of Cedar­town, and in ad­di­tion to rais­ing a fam­ily, she also pre­vi­ously worked at Woolen Mills and Goodyear.

Quilt­ing, cro­chet­ing, and plant­ing flow­ers were a few of her pas­time hob­bies.

Terry, Crow­ley’s nephew, shared his fa­vorite mem­ory of play­ing with her son, David, on Sun­day af­ter­noons and watch­ing the Yan­kee’s game with his aunt.

Crow­ley’s sis­ter, Ge­or­gia, rem­i­nisced on the con­fi­dence, great sense of hu­mor, and zest for ad­ven­ture she shared over the years.

Crow­ley con­tin­ues to have that spark.

She pro­claimed dur­ing a cel­e­bra­tion last week that “I know I’m pretty be­cause I see it in the glass and see it for my­self.”

A cen­tury worth of life ex­pe­ri­ences brings with it wis­dom and in­sight that was tapped into by ask­ing Louise ques­tions…

What is the se­cret to reach­ing your 100th birth­day?

She sim­ply replied “By just get­ting there”.

And how has the world changed over the last 100 years?

“The world doesn’t change, its peo­ple that change,” Crow­ley said.

Cel­e­bra­tions for Crow­ley’s birth­day were held on her birth­day, which was on Mon­day, Oct. 1.
