RUMFORD — The Rumford Community Home has chosen Pauline Robichaud, 102, to enter in the annual “Remember Me” program held by the Maine Health Care Association.

She was one of 44 entrants throughout the state and received honorable mention, receiving a plaque at the State House in Augusta on April 12.

Robichaud was born Dec. 13, 1910. The oldest of six children, she is the only living sibling. She is the mother of five children, grandmother of 17  and many great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

Robichaud is the oldest resident in the Rumford Community Home and is one of the most active.

She reads the daily newspaper and does the crossword puzzle each day, crochets, and writes letters to family and friends. She is an avid reader and loves to play bingo, attends weekly Catholic Mass, is a member of the Resident Council, makes items for the annual craft fair and will occasionally play the piano. She has made several seasonal jigsaw puzzles that are now hanging in the dining room.

Robichaud is pictured holding the “Remember Me” plaque below the American flag puzzle that she put together.
