Salute To Seniors: New England Mother of 10 Puts Others First
Each week, we'll be highlighting a senior who played a part of making New England such a great place to live. This week, we want to salute Norma Stanley, who was nominated by her daughter Roz.
"My mom is 94 years old, lives in her own home and takes care of her neighbors whenever they need help. Some of the neighbors are in poor health, so she takes them a meal or stops in to visit and see what else they may need. One neighbor, who recently passed away, had Alzheimer's disease and would often forget even her own family members; however, she always remembered my mom and loved her visits. She knew she could depend on my mom to help her get dressed, get something good to eat, or just sit outside for a bit and sip on hot tea while they talked politics.
Mom frequently writes editorials for the Portland Press Herald and loves it when people write a rebuttal that makes her think with an open mind, even if it doesn't change her perspective on the issue.
As the mother of 10 children, she is responsible for many, many lives and is there for all those who need her help. The picture (above) was taken at her 94th birthday, which was on September 17th."
Each week, HOM will be featuring a different senior who has made New England a better place to live. Nominate a special senior in your life to tell their story. They can be a relative, friend, neighbor or someone else you know. You can even nominate yourself. The featured senior will receive a $50 gift card to use at an area mall, and a one year subscription to American Senior magazine. They'll also be invited to a luncheon here at Townsquare Media, honoring all of the seniors we're saluting.
