Helen Tannehill celebrates centennial

April 28, 2012

EAST GREENWICH — Helen Tannehill sat in her wheelchair in the main foyer of The Seasons East Greenwich on Monday, donning a pristine blue dress looking at all of the balloons and a vase of red roses on the table in front of her.

A person who loved growing numerous plants of her own, such as African Violets, Tannehill glazed over the small array of roses with fondness, as well as taking in the proud moment of reaching a milestone of life that very few people around have accomplished.

“I never thought I would’ve turned 100,” Tannehill said.

Its really great to know that she reached 100th year of her life. Who can ever thought to be about century old? I hope for more years to come in her life.
