Lewisburg – RiverWoods resident Betty Reed will celebrate her 100th birthday on Sunday, March 29, 2020. RiverWoods Senior Living Community has suspended visitation across all levels of living at our campus, as required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), but nurses and staff plan to celebrate with Betty on Sunday.

Betty was widowed at a young age, after having three children. She went to Kent State University to pursue a teaching degree and became a math teacher after graduation. Betty taught math at Fairless High School in Ohio for approximately 15-20 years. Betty moved to RiverWoods in April of 2019.

Betty’s children planned a party for her 100th birthday, but the party had to be canceled due to restrictions in place to prevent Coronavirus. They said Betty is a very positive person who enjoys sipping on tea and watching sports on television. Betty also enjoyed traveling for many years and loves reading and playing Bridge. Her children are very proud of their mom and all that she has accomplished in her life. 

RiverWoods staff posted a picture of Betty on Facebook, and she has received over 1,200 likes, more than 550 birthday wishes, and more than 480 shares as of today!
