Lifelong Malden resident Gertrude “Gert” Murray celebrated 100 years on Sunday, March 21st. Mayor Gary Christenson surprised her at a family celebration at the Exchange Street Bistro to deliver her a citation in recognition of her milestone birthday.
Gert has lived in the same house her entire life, has been a proud member of the community and is well-known for her devotion to her family, and being a loving aunt. Perhaps she is most famous for being Malden Hospital’s longest working employee having spent more than 50 years on the job! When Mayor Christenson asked Gert what her secret was for such a long and happy life, she said that the love of her family, walking, and taking apple cider vinegar every day is what keeps her young!
