Geneva Alford celebrated her 100th birthday on Aug. 15 at Three Bells of Montara, surrounded by Barbara Walsh, the companion of Alford's late son Jimmy, Walsh's daughter Melody Madsen and an enthusiastic Three Bells community.

Born the oldest of three girls on Nov. 12, 1912, in Stockton, Alford lived for much of her life in the South Bay, specifically in the San Jose/Los Gatos area. She came to Three Bells in 2001 because her son Jimmy lived in the area.

Still keenly attuned to what is going on around her and full of stories about the flower and rose gardens she loved and tended when younger, Alford had clear words for upcoming generations.

“Just use your head,” she said, “and be sure to do the right things when you are younger.”

Welcome to the discussion.
