A Bailey Manor resident, she just turned 101 on May 12, 2014, and was honored as the most senior person in the parade. Skipper has always loved the 4th of July and celebrating the birth of our country. She recently asked how old Uncle Sam was. When told he was born in 1812, she chuckled, realizing that Uncle Sam was only 101 years older than her, and she was catching up. Even though she is deaf and blind, she wakes with a smile every day.
Skipper is greeted by the Commodores.
