Grace Plaza's Resident Celebrates 102nd Birthday

Recently, Syde Zwern, a 3-year resident at Grace Plaza Nursing and Rehabilitation Center celebrated her 102nd birthday. Syde was born on December 25, 1912 in Queens, New York. She married her husband Louis in 1942 and raised two daughters. Jacqueline and Reina. Louis passed away in 1986 after 44 years of marriage. When asked for advice on how she stays so positive and young, Syde replied, “I don’t think about my age, I just do what I have to do and try to be thankful for all I have.” Today Syde is blessed to have 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. Syde is an avid reader and stays busy by attending the activities and enjoying the entertainment and her friends at Grace Plaza. Syde went home for her birthday to celebrate this special day surrounded by her loving family and at Grace Plaza we feel we are very blessed to also share this day with her.
