Any birthday is worth celebrating, whether with family, friends, or alone.
It’s even more reason to rejoice when you reach 80 years old with your twin sibling and your 103-year-old mom is still with you.
David Mosher and Winnie Mosher Merrill reside in Brunswick, Maine, and they are thankful and privileged to be able to celebrate it with their family.
They’re especially pleased that they were able to share their 80th birthday celebration with their centenarian mom.
Few people may claim to have witnessed this. They had also recently celebrated the start of a new year.
Helen had her twin kids when she was just 23 years old. According to sources, she had 79 descendants when she reached her age, and she was fortunate to spend her life with them.
David and Winnie, dressed in matching red sweaters, planned food and cake for the party.
Helen prayed before they began eating, blessing her family and the country.
Their visitors laughed and delighted as they sang “Happy Birthday” to the twins, who were accompanied by their mom.
And David and Winnie’s combined 80th birthday party was undoubtedly one of her life’s highlights.
She realized she had done an excellent job of self-care in order to live to be more than a hundred years old. She also did an excellent job nurturing her family and watching them develop. Even though her kids were grown adults, she was concerned about them, as any mom would be.
Helen also enjoyed watching baseball and kept a scoreboard during each game.
Was it Winnie’s passion for baseball that drew her to add baseball to their life when she married former Yankee Manager Stump Merrill?
However one thing is certain: Helen’s favorite baseball player remains “that beautiful Andrew Benintendi of the Boston Red Sox.”
Helen has 76 grandkids, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren thanks to David and Winnie’s other sibling, Richard.
It was wonderful that they were able to enjoy this milestone birthday and life event.
Helen would be celebrating their birthday for the last time. Helen died 11 months after they achieved this milestone.
Charles Mosher, her husband of 64 years and the love of her life, joined her in the hereafter.
They honored her life like any close family would since she shared their lives with them. And it is for this reason that they remember their family matriarch fondly.
