Resident Spotlight: Happy Birthday 101st Kathleen! 

Celebrating a birthday with any of our residents or staff members always brings us so much joy and excitement. From the decorations and cake to the presents and special activities planned, we all have such a great time coming together to thoughtfully coordinate every little detail to ensure the birthday person feels extra special on this day.  

On February 22nd, we had the honour of celebrating a very special milestone with one of our residents at Forest Hill, Kathleen Richardson or “Kay”, who turned 101 years old! It was a day filled with love, laugher, and celebration, and we’re so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of this special occasion.  

About Kathleen: 

Kathleen “Kay” Richardson was born in Saskatchewan but spent most of her life with her family in Nova Scotia. Kay’s professional journey was diverse and fulfilling; at different times, she managed a restaurant, ran a camp group, she even worked as a bookkeeper and a supply teacher at school.   

Beyond her work endeavors, Kay was extraordinarily talented in knitting, crocheting, and quilt making. Each of her grandchildren, whom she absolutely adores, are lucky enough to own a quilt hand sown by Kay. 

Kay was deeply involved in her community through her active participation in various church groups. She also held a membership with the Daughters of the Nile, an affiliate organization of the Shriners, where she volunteered with their philanthropic efforts and community service initiatives.  

Kay’s life is a life rich of experiences, family and purpose. Join as we with Kathleen a very happy 101st birthday! Here’s to many more!
