PruittHealth – Palmyra Resident Celebrates 105th Birthday

​Healthcare Center Hosts Birthday Celebration for 105-year-old resident

ALBANY, GA (March 21, 2018) – PruittHealth – Palmyra held a birthday celebration on March 14, 2018 in honor of their residents who have exceeded 100 years of life, including 105-year-old resident, Mamie Nelson.

Ms. Mamie Nelson was born in 1913. She was a seamstress and loved to make quilts and clothing. Ms. Nelson worked very hard for her money, therefore she held onto it with a tight grip. If any family member or friend ever needed anything, she would assist them without hesitation. Ms. Nelson feels that knowledge is a necessity to excel in life, so she would always encourage others to further their education. Although she did not have any children of her own, she believes in tough love. Ms. Nelson is known for wearing her hats and sunglasses on a daily basis. She also enjoys hot sauce on her food!

"PruittHealth – Palmyra is very excited to be able to celebrate Mamie Nelson's amazing life and reaching this special milestone of 105 years old!" says Chris King, Administrator of PruittHealth – Palmyra. "She has truly been a blessing to all who have known her since she has been with us and still manages to bring joy each day by the way she lives her life. To live life to the fullest is something I think we all strive for, and Mamie is truly the inspiration that shows it is still possible."

A separate birthday party for Mamie Nelson will be held March 30, 2018 in Albany, Georgia at the PruittHealth – Palmyra facility (located at 1904 Palmyra Rd.) starting at 2 p.m. For more information on the event, please contact Chris King at or (229) 883-0500.
