St. John's Home resident Rose Bowles celebrated her 100th birthday while Eibe Ruesch celebrated turning 90 in the Lilac Neighborhood on Wednesday. A massive strawberry shortcake and an apple pie were served to Rose and Eibe, as well as other residents, family, and friends. When asked what the secret is to living 100 years, Rose answered, "Gotta just keep breathing!"
