Happy Birthday

Loretta Gross turned 107-years-old on Thursday, April 25.

Loretta’s family, including her son Robert and her daughter Susan, along with all her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, celebrated her milestone with her recently at Providence Rest.

Assemblyman Michael Benedetto stopped by the celebration to present Loretta with a citation.

Councilman Mark Gjonaj sent a citation as well.

According to her family: Whenever she used to go to doctor and they would ask what year she was born. She would always answer that she was born 10 days after the Titanic sunk on April 25, 1912.
