Foundation for Senior Care celebrates 102-year-old Fallbrookian

FALLBROOK – Lula Hedrick, long time Fallbrookian, just celebrated her 102nd birthday on Oct. 22. Born in 1910, she and her husband moved to Fallbrook in 1936. Fallbrook’s Main St. was a dirt road, the train still came through town and women had their babies at home. Mrs. Hedrick knows this all too well as her first born son was born at home. She is spry and happy. She has a lot of family in Fallbrook who celebrated her birthday on Oct. 21.

Senior care advocates Shaun Lemon and Irene Escobedo visited her to celebrate and honor this wonderful woman, full of life! They said she is “a delight” and remembers a lot of history about Fallbrook and its growth.

Mrs. Hedrick is no stranger to the Foundation for Senior Care. After giving up driving sometime around age 90, she was excited when the Care Van became available in 2004. She could now go out with the Care Van and not depend as much on others. As she got older, she found out about the Senior Care Advocacy program and learned how it could help her to remain independent.

Foundation director Dotty Metcalf said, “We are blessed to know Lula Hedrick and wish her many more healthy years!”
