Courtland Gardens Resident Lillian Dorsey Turns 106 Years Old

In 1905, the average worker in the U.S. earned 22 cents per hour, Albert Einstein proposed the theory of relativity and Lillian Dorsey was born. On November 14, 2011, Mrs. Dorsey celebrated her 106 birthday with family, friends and her extended family at Courtland Gardens Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

“She is a true inspiration,” said her grandson, William E. Rogers, Junior, who, with his wife, came to Baltimore from Florida for the occasion. “She was always helping out someone else, whether it was a family member or someone in the community.”

Just how much she means to her loved ones is evident. There were six generations of Mrs. Dorsey’s family at the birthday bash, the youngest was born just three days earlier on November 11.

“She is so nice, she loves everybody and has a sweet personality,” says Shemaiah Johnson, GNA at Courtland Gardens, who calls Mrs. Dorsey, grandma.

Lillian prepares to blow out the candles on her birthday cake.

Some of the secrets to her longevity… she also enjoys being around people, going to church and traveling.

Of course, what would a birthday party be without ice cream, cake and punch!
