NJ Resident Celebrates 106th Birthday
Last month, Ocean County resident Pauline Vallon celebrated her 106th birthday at the CareOne retirement home in Jackson, New Jersey. The center is one of 29 managed by Daniel E. Straus, CareOne Chairman and CEO.
According to her family and friends, Vallon has spent a century helping others throughout her community. Her daughter, Heidi Vallon of New York, explained that Pauline spent many years working in family-owned Lakewood hotels.
“She was very hard-working,” her granddaughter added.
Vallon’s family believes that her longevity is a result of a positive outlook, immeasurable generosity, and dedication to charity.
“She was very committed to helping people,” said Reise Sweet, a friend of Vallon.
In fact, Vallon spent most of her life raising funds for Deborah Heart and Lung Center, Temple Beth Am, Kimball Medical Center, and many other institutes.
Carolyn Hair, another family friend, said: “She really is a magnificent woman for her time. She’s just a force to be reckoned with.”
