Fairwinds Senior Living Community was joined by several residents on Friday, Oct. 7, celebrating the 100th birthday of Ms. Jasmine Taibbi.

“I have no idea how I made it, but here I am,” she said, with a grin from ear-to-ear.

She celebrated the special day with her granddaughter, friends and Fairwinds staff.

All this was done while she performed a slow drag to the Jazz and Blues music that was being played, though she did have to take a break from time to time.

“She has suffered so many losses and yet she smiles, she is never angry, she is never bitter, and she is full of life and love,” her granddaughter Lorice said.
