Thelma turns 100

Thelma "Tim" Boudreaux get together with her family during her 100th birthday.

If you hit triple digits, you deserve a big party.

That’s what Thelma “Tim” Boudreaux got for her 100th birthday on Feb. 1 at the Healdsburg senior living community on Grove Street.

“It’s lovely to see all these people,” she said. “I have such a wonderful family.”

Family came from South Carolina, Baton Rouge and even Weisbaden, Germany to share in the festivities.

Boudreaux is no stranger to travel herself. She said her husband was a doctor in the military and that his work took them to many places.

The trick to feeling young at 100, she said, is simple: take advantage of your opportunities.

“Enjoy life, spend your days being pleasant and keep busy,” Boudreaux said.

It’s been a good life so far for Boudreaux and she doesn’t plan on changing a winning formula. She plans to continue to be involved in the happenings at the community and in Healdsburg.
