Helen Crossley — who has resided in the independent living facility at Culpepper Garden, a retirement community at 4435 N. Pershing Drive, for more than 30 years — will be turning 105 on Saturday, Aug. 24.

Crossley was a career nurse and didn’t stop practicing nursing until she was in her 90s. She remains active and independent to this day.

“She still gets around on her own, goes out to dinner with relatives, [and] participates in our monthly karaoke sessions,” said Culpepper Garden marketing director Lee Kaplowitz. “She has a tremendous sense of humor leaning towards the sarcastic side and, all in all, is a hoot.”
