Four generations came together on Sunday to celebrate Roberta Stark-Chevers’ 100th birthday.

There were more than friends and family in attendance, members of the community made their way out to the Queenston home, where Stark-Chevers still lives, to celebrate as well.

Maja Ristic, a resident of Niagara-on-the-Green, read an advertisement in The Lake Report about the celebration and, with a home-made card in hand, said she came down to offer birthday wishes.

Stark-Chevers has lived in NOTL her whole life and is surrounded by friends and family who come to help her at her home.

Her best advice to following generations is to just enjoy every moment, she said.

“I’m just happy I’m still here,” she said. Alert and healthy, she beamed as she was surrounded by family to mark a century of life.
