Things were downright centennial recently at the Mohawk Valley Health System Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, formerly St. Luke’s Home. That’s because four residents were saluted for turning 100 years of age or more.

The center, located on the St. Luke’s campus, honored four residents, Brenda Baldwin, Rocco DeRocco, Martha Pietsch and Mildred Rokeach of the Barton East unit, all celebrated their 100th birthday or higher.

The unit commemorated the birthdays with a luncheon attended by family members. The guests of honor chose their favorite meals for the occasion.

“We are so fortunate to have not one, but four centenarians living in our facility, and each one is still active in the life of the facility,” said Jacquelyn DeLuca, MVHS director of therapeutic recreation.
