When you think about the world changing events and new technological introductions that she has witnessed it boggles the mind. Yet after all she has seen and lived through over the past 100 years, Ms. Cynthia “Sinthy” Joe’s mind is still sharp as a tack.
The Great Depression, five wars including World War 1 & II, the advent of air and space travel and the coming of the television and internet age are just a few of the many things that this beloved resident of Jonesboro has seen.
To help celebrate this rare milestone of turning 100 years old this past Wednesday, Ms. “Sinthy” was treated to a grand party on the front lawn of her home where a huge throng of friends and family came together to celebrate with her.
The beloved member of the Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Jonesboro was also treated to a special presentation when her Pastor, Reginald Staten, read a proclamation declaring that from now on the church would officially recognize December 29th as Ms. “Sinthy” Joe Day in her honor.
When asked what her secret to such a long and fruitful live was Ms. Joe replied simply by saying that she it owes it to “Work hard and living for the Lord every day.” Words we should all heed!
Congratulation’s to Ms. “Sinthy” on reaching such a wonderful milestone and here’s wishing you many more birthday’s ahead.
