Avamere at Seaside, an independent living and memory care senior community, celebrated a monumental birthday for resident Edi Brown. She turned 99 on June 13, 2020

We sat down with Edi and her daughter, Michelle, and asked her a few questions as she reflected on 99 years of life.

What is your secret to a long life?

“Staying active!” exclaims Edi. “I tap danced until I was 90 years old. I also have loved to take trips to Hawaii and ski Mt. Hood.”

Do you have a favorite memory from when you were younger?

“One of my favorite memories is when I sang for the troops in California,” notes Edi. “I also was a ship welder for some time, and that made for some good memories!”

What is a food you really enjoy?

“I love a cup of noodle soup and KFC,” she stated.

What advice do you have for others?

“Behave yourself, be polite, and be kind,” notes Edi.

Edi is excited for the next year and is determined to live to be 100! Find out more about Avamere at Seaside by visiting their Facebook page.
