Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Malden resident Theresa Erickson recently celebrated 100 years with a party of relatives and friends. Mayor Gary Christenson surprised her with a citation in recognition of her milestone birthday. Theresa, who was born in Rhode Island and later moved to Everett, now calls Malden home. She and her beloved husband, Walter, with whom she shared 67 years of marriage, raised three children: Leslie, Mary and Joseph. She now enjoys spending time with them, her seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren as well as going on long drives with family.

When Mayor Christenson asked Theresa what her secret is for such a long and happy life, she said that “keeping moving” is what keeps her young.
