Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) was honored to celebrate Maxine Barber’s 105th birthday with her and her family while she was at CMH.
Living through two World Wars and now two pandemics, Maxine has seen a lot of change in her lifetime. “When I got married in 1937, gas was five gallons for $1. Now it’s one gallon for $5,” remarked Maxine.
With her son, other family and friends attending to mark this milestone, Maxine opened gifts and cut her own birthday cake, feeling excited to have such a fun party while in the hospital. Making sure her hair was curled and she dressed for the event, Maxine noted, “I love the staff here, I wish I could take them home with me!”
