103-Year-Old Delawarean Says Follow Your Dreams

Happy Birthday to Marion Wynder, who recently celebrated her 103rd birthday! Born February 8, 1913, Marion has lived in Wilmington her whole life and is the most senior resident at the Ministry of Caring’s Sacred Heart Village. Even Governor Jack Markell joined residents who celebrated Marion’s historic birthday.


Many have asked to know Marion’s secret to longevity. She always answers with two words, “Hard work.” When asked if she has any advice for young kids, she spoke strongly about the importance of education. “If they have a dream, college is the best thing for them,” she said. “Please be good, and do whatever your dream tells you. And try to do the best in life that you can.” Her advice for everyone is, “I don’t care what color or what age, be good to yourselves. Try to treat everybody the same. Always have a smile for them.”
