ST. GEOEGE’S, GRENADA, September 15, 2015 – GIS: Family members and friends came out to celebrate a major milestone with another centenarian on Monday.

Annie Griffith of Richmond Hill, who was born on September 12, 1915, celebrated her 100th Birthday in a grand way with a party on Saturday, September 12, 2015.

Surrounded by a few of her children and Parliamentary Representative for St. George South East Hon. Gregory Bowen, she shared how happy she feels to still have a wide knowledge of things past and present.

“Praise the Lord, I still have a lot of memory more than some people that younger than me.

I could remember some good things,” she said, while holding hands with her Parliamentary Representative.

The Centenarian is the mother of fifteen, nine of whom are still alive.

Annie is described as a hardworking, humble, loving woman.

Her son Lincoln Julien Griffith says he has very fond memories of his mother growing up as a little boy.
He reminisced on seeing her working hard to support her family.

“This woman worked hard she life.

She worked in the park…in the gravel pit...cooking...working the land.

She is the hardest working lady I know in my life,” he said.

The Centenarian was also presented with two gift baskets from the Ministry of Social Development’s Desk of the Elderly.
“One hundred years and very collective,” Hon. Gregory Bowen said.
