Sun City Center resident Angelina Padua celebrated her 107th birthday at the Senior Center in Ruskin among friends and family this week. She grew up in the small town of Montemurro, Italy, until 1921 when she met and fell in love with Rocco Padua, an Italian American barber. They moved to Albany, New York, where she lived until 1995. She then moved to Florida to live with Lucille and Ed Rose. Angelina says her secret to maintaining her long life is olive oil. She currently lives with her son-in-law, Ed Rose, who said “Angelina is so happy and excited to be celebrating her birthday. She has already had three parties and just loves all the attention.” Angelina got to be “Queen for a Day” on her 107th birthday. She was presented with a scepter and tiara while sitting on her royal throne accompanied by Sherri Worthington, adult aide. “The secret to her health is her daily glass of wine and her positive attitude. She doesn’t dwell on the past, only the future. She hopes to celebrate many more birthdays,” said Ed Rose.
