The first and third grade students of Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Philadelphia’s Roxborough section celebrated Nina Turzi’s 100th birthday Oct. 14 at the school.
The children sang “Happy Birthday” to Turzi, a long-time parishioner of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish. The tech-savvy centenarian, who enjoys using the computer, also enjoys traveling to casinos and loves Italian cookies.
Parishioners say Turzi takes pride in her personal appearance and still regularly drives herself to a hairdresser.
IHM Parish and school were happy to be part of her special day.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
