January 1, 2011

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.”
