Duchemin celebrates 100 years

When former teacher and lifelong Clermont County resident Grace Duchemin turned 100 this week, several celebrations were held in her honor. She is now a resident at Batavia Nursing Care Center, and fellow residents and staff held a party for her Thursday, Oct. 8.

“We usually have monthly birthday parties for our residents,” said administrator Brandy Masminster. “But we have never had a birthday party for someone turning 100.”

“I don’t know how I’ve lived to be 100,” said Duchemin. “Only the Lord knows.”
