Our Client, Edith, Celebrates Her 106th Birthday in 2022

Edith grew up in Albany during the Great Depression and moved to New York City in 1940. Her parents ran a small store, and that’s where Edith learned the value of hard work. Over the course of her career she worked in restaurants, in civil service, and she even had a job as a reporter on Wall Street.

“The stock exchange was hiring women. They were eager to employ women to show that they were equal opportunity. It was quite an experience.” -Edith

Edith has always valued her independence but as her health has declined, certain tasks have become very difficulty for her. She developed an essential tremor that prevents her from preparing meals for herself. She says, “It is too difficult to go out and shop or cook. There are a lot of delicate movements involved.” Now at 105 years young, Edith receives medically tailored, home-delivered meals from God’s Love. These meals help keep her nourished and allow her to maintain some of her autonomy. She particularly loves the soups!

“God’s Love gives you a good feeling. You are a wonderful organization!” -Edith
