Hillcrest Resident Celebrates 108th Birthday

Signature HealthCARE at Hillcrest was very excited to celebrate Audra Martin’s 108th birthday on March 19.

Audra was born March 19, 1907, in Ohio County near Beaver Dam. She had one sister and has a niece and nephew. She was also married at the age of 81.

Audra began her career with Kentucky Utilities, in Hartford, Ky., and she retired from the same company in Louisville, Kentucky as an auditor in the accounting department in 1972 at the age of 65. At age 66, she took computer classes at the local community college and is now the oldest member of the Beaver Dam Baptist Church. She is also a member of the Kentucky Order of the Eastern Star.

Audra has been with Hillcrest for many years, and she currently spends her time playing bingo and reading the newspaper. She believes she has lived 108 years because she has always eaten three healthy, cooked meals a day.
