The birthday bash was held at The Elms of Cranbury in Cranbury Township on March 14.

“These Ladies are truly incredible,” said Kelly Aylward, director of marketing for The Elms. “All spoke giving thanks to their families, The Elms, and the Cranbury community for always showing their endless support throughout their stay”.

She shared that there were many tears that filled the room when Grace [Castellano]’s great-grandson sat on her lap at only 5 months old.

“The great grandson of Marie [Guerra] spoke of his love for his great grandmother and gave her a huge hug,” Aylward added. “The Elms would like to thank Tina, Deirdre, Karen and Kelly Tyers along with the rest of the Elms staff in creating a memorable centenarian birthday celebration.”

Aylward also expressed thanks to the families, long term care residents, Deputy Mayor Eman El-Badawi, and Nicholas Rodrigues from the Cranbury Township Police Department, who is also president of PBA (Policemen’s Benevolent Association 405) for attending and being a part of the Castellano, Banas, Fresolone, and Guerra’s special birthday celebration.
