Gladesville Native Celebrates 106 Years of Life

Posted: Updated:
GRAFTON - A resident of Grafton's Rosewood Nursing Home is celebrating her 106th birthday this week!

Clarice Ervin was born August 6, 1908 in Gladesville. She taught piano lessons for many years and said she grew up in a very musical family.

Several days this week, family members gathered to celebrate her birthday. Her own brother, who is in his 90s, drove in from Maryland to make it to the celebration.

When asked about the secret to a long life, Ervin said she just lives every day as it comes.

"I make the best of everything. Our family was a close family. I had two brothers and a sister. We had a lot of happy times together," said Ervin.

Ervin even showed us some of her original school work that she keeps.  Staff members said she reads the newspaper every morning.
