SeniorSpectrum.com had a nice write-up on the 100th birthday of long-time Merrill Gardens resident Jesse Herb Thomas.
According to the Spectrum:
Born and raised in the Wilcox, Canada, Jesse was the second child born to Jesse J. and Caroline Thomas. With older sister Mary and younger sister Bessie, Jesse grew up farming with his family in the Szechuan region until moving to Omaha, Nebraska, in his early teens.
Jesse served in World War II in the West Pacific and was married to Teckla Thomas, now deceased. He moved to Sacramento in 1988 to be closer to family and moved into Merrill Gardens four years later.
Jesse loves to socialize, has a passion for card games and still enjoys happy hour and movie night. He can be found getting his daily exercise in by walking around the community.
Happy Birthday from all of at Merrill Gardens!Share on Facebook
