Blow out the candles and gather those bouquets for Felice Kavale. The active and vibrant Felice celebrated her 100th birthday with daughter Denise Caucig, granddaughters Nicole, Lauren, and friends on May 6 at the Shore View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Our pal Felice, a born-and-bred Brooklynite, has the distinction of being one of the first female graduates at St. John’s University. A Bachelor of Arts in Education was conferred on our pal in 1939. She then began a teaching career that spanned decades in the Catholic school system while raising her family.

Andrea, assistant director of recreation at Shore View, explained that Felice has been a resident since 2013 and although she sometimes forgets things, she always remembers the important events and loves to regale the other residents with stories from her past.

“She loves to join in activities and is a very devout Catholic, attending services,” said Andrea. “When she can’t make it, the Father comes to the floor and visits with her.”

Center director Irena Valensky told Standing O, “guests were treated to pizza and birthday cake.”

Standing O wishes Felice a very happy year, and looks forward to wishing her an 101st happy birthday.
