Local woman marks 108 years

January 1, 2011

LINCOLN — Futurists and the soothsayers of health care predict advances in medical science will one day make people like her much more common. But for now, the ranks of people walking the planet like Edna Mae Boudreau are decidedly rare.
She is extraordinarily old.
And she’s marking another milestone today. She turns 108.
“It’s absolutely amazing,” says her son, Gerard “Bud” Boudreau of North Smithfield. “I never thought I’d meet anyone who was 108 years old, let alone my own mother. And to be able to communicate with her and have her be so sharp, well, it’s just amazing.”
