A great lady celebrated her 100th birthday

December 21, 2012
The Alpena News

Pauline King turned 100 years old on Thursday, Dec. 20.

The article in the Alpena News was interesting and her picture portrayed a beautiful lady.

However, perhaps people don't know that she volunteered at Tendercare for 12 years and had to quit at age 99 because she had fallen at home.

I met her at Neiman's about three years ago and after talking to her a few minutes she said, "I've got to get going and go to work," So I said, "where do you work?" She replied, "At Tendercare, taking care of those old people."

I've known Mrs. King most of my life and consider her a vibrant lady. What an example she has set for us to follow. If we have time on our hands, we can volunteer.

God bless you Pauline, Happy Birthday.
