Winslow resident celebrates 100th birthday
The Madison Avenue Retirement Community celebrated yet another 100th birthday for one of their residents this summer.
Eleanor Deines turned 100 years old June 23.
Despite reaching this pinnacle, with the years and through her religion, Deines said she has found that time, age and the inevitable end is nothing to fear.
“I just don’t believe in age,” Deines said. “I don’t believe that time has anything to do with this world.”
Perhaps it is this belief that’s the secret to her long years. Either way, Deines says it’s what has kept her from worrying or grieving too long for the people she has seen come and go, of which include one daughter, Gretchen, and her husband, Harry.
“I believe life is eternal,” Deines said. “I don’t believe we die, we change.”
