Name: Catherine Mehan Age:105

with one comment

Catherine lives in an assisted-living facility in Peoria. She will be turning 105 on July 28th. She has seen a lot and loved even more. Losing her first husband was so painful she still tears up over him. I spent a while talking to her; she seemed grateful and invited me back to her birthday party. I think I will go.

She didn’t laugh all of that much, but I did catch the one time she did.
