MILFORD, PA — Belle Reve resident Sarah Dunn is living life to the fullest. She turned 103 years old on April 2, and the Belle Reve community and staff members were there to help celebrate.

Dunn’s parents were born in Italy and she is a first-generation American. They were very family-oriented and religious. She was one of eight children, and only has one brother still living, who resides in Texas. She was married and she and her husband enjoyed traveling around the world. They lived in New York City and she worked as an executive secretary for an electric appliance company in Manhattan, but had to hide that she was married because married women at that time were not supposed to work. Dunn was an avid golfer during her retirement and she was the first woman in New Jersey to hit a hole in one.

She has been a resident at Belle Reve since 2008.For more information, call 570/409-9191, or visit
