BY ECLEEN CARABALLO firstname.lastname@example.org @QueensCourier Centenarians are somewhat of a rarity; yet there are eight women at the Queen of Peace Residence who will be celebrating a total of 807 years of life this year. Queen of Peace Residence, owned by Little Sisters of the Poor, is a residential healthcare facility that has been serving the elderly since 1839. Their residence in Queens Village is one of eight homes for the aged in the tristate area with the mission of making the residents’ last days happy ones, considering themselves more of a family than a nursing home. Sister Gabrielle, who has been with the Little Sisters for 53 years now, said, “We’re their little sisters and we encourage the other residents to be a part of the family, and so all of us will join together for this birthday party.” Among those celebrated are five who will be turning 100, one who will be 101 and two who are turning 103. One of the 100-year-olds, Mary McQuade, said her birthday wish was to reach her next birthday of 101. After having lived through everything from two World Wars, to the invention of the cellphone, there is plenty of life to celebrate. The birthday bash took place on the Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Queen of Peace Residence auditorium located at 11030 221st St., Queens Village.
