Coney Island

104 and counting

It’s another birthday for Louise Edelman. The über centenarian celebrated the big 104 with cake, balloons, and good wishes at her residence at Scheuer House on Aug. 13 (even though her actual birthday is Aug. 11. But the extra two days were no biggie!). Last year Standing O marveled that Louise still read without glasses. It’s one year later and she’s still spectacle free and reading our paper, but then, why not? Louise is one smart cookie and this is the best read in town. As usual, Louise stays young at heart and maintains that she really doesn’t know why she’s been blessed with so many years. “I don’t know, I live, I just live,” she told Standing O. Long time member, friend, and community activist Judd Fischler gets his daily dose of inspiration from Louise every time he sees her. “I’ve known Louise for the past four or five years and am always inspired by her. She makes her appearance everyday, is an active person, with a ready smile and has a great sense of humor,” he said. Adding, “She really enjoyed her party, she was twirling in her chair with her caregiver and smiling away at the music and festivities. She is one sweet lady.”

Standing O extends last year’s wish for Louise, “Here’s to another 100 birthdays, we still need all the fans we can get.”
