Birthday celebrations for Naomi
Naomi Sterling has been a member at Newbridge Baptist Church in Bordesley Green, Birmingham since 1962.
She turned 100 on 15 December and a grand party to celebrate this milestone was held at Newbridge Baptist a week later. Naomi was joined by her three children and niece (far right) who came all the way from the US for the occasion.
Naomi still lives alone (against the will of her children) and is able to do most things for herself. Until a few months ago, she was still a regular usher welcoming all who entered the church doors.
She is a beloved member of her church and community. May God continue to bless her.
