Think of all that has occurred in the world, in the 107 years since 1911! Mary Damiani, who has been a resident at Bartley Healthcare for 12 years, celebrated her 107th birthday on March 11th. Together, Bartley and Holisticare Hospice threw Mary a birthday bash for her to celebrate, that she will never forget!

Mary’s birthday is March 11, 1911. She grew up in Passaic, NJ, and even her house number was 11! Mary is one of 9 siblings, and one of 5 daughters. Her brother Frank, the baby of the family, is 93 years old. Mary has two grandsons, and two great grandsons, that she absolutely adores.

After grammar school Mary went to work as a seamstress, starting at the age of 14, retiring 70 years later, at the age of 84. In an interesting coincidence, the co-owners of Bartley Healthcare, Drs. Vincent and Peter De Muro’s mother, took over the business that Mary worked for, after 45 years.

Mary loves to dance. When you dance, she dances, and you don’t even need the music! She loved to go to Atlantic City and take trips. Taking a trip to Hawaii and walking on a volcano was one of her fondest memories. Mary loves the Yankees and Mickey Mantle was her hero.

Maryann, Mary’s daughter and only child visits her every day at Bartley. and has an extremely close relationship with her mother. She greatly enjoyed celebrating her mom’s 107th birthday with everyone at Bartley Healthcare.
