Still sharp at 100 years old
Hard work and love for God are two things Mary Massiah is known for.
The centenarian said these are the things which helped her reach her ripe old age.
Massiah was resting in bed when the SUNDAY SUN arrived. Outside, more than 50 people had gathered under a tent at her granddaughter’s home in celebration of Massiah’s long life.
Massiah is a former scullery maid, farmer and shopkeeper. She had two children – Vivian Gittens, deceased, and Palmer Massiah, and has four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Her son Palmer said he admired his mother and could hardly express his feelings on seeing her reach 100. (CA)
