Daisy turns 102!

Daisy Messer celebrated her 102nd birthday Wednesday, September 16, and was joined by family at Barbourville Health and Rehabilitation Center thanks to a plexiglass barrier donated recently by Bluegrass Care Navigators.

In an article in 2018 honoring Daisy’s 100th birthday, then-reporter Tasha Stewart asked Daisy what her secret was to living such a long life. She responded, “Hard work, I guess. That’s all I knew when I was growing up. Walking and working. I’d get up at four o’clock in the morning, before the sun shines…to work the garden and milk the cows.”
