Edvige Leone recently celebrated her 80th birthday with family and friends. She emigrated from Italy in 1966 and has made Malden her home ever since. Edvige very much enjoys spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, as well as tending to her garden, and cooking delicious authentic Italian food. Mayor Christenson presented her with a citation in honor of her milestone and when the Mayor asked what her secret was, she responded that “her faith in God” is the reason for her long and healthy life.
