UPDATED: Centenarian does not consume processed food


Philomen Eldica “D” Nicholas of Piat, Grrand Riviere, Gros-Islet is the island’s newest centenarian.

She welcomed family, friends and well-wishers in high spirits this morning.

Nicholas was born on October 22, 1914 in Dauphin, Monchy and later married and took up residency in Grand Riviere. Her husband died 12 years ago.

She told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that she does not consume processed foods. She likes eating crabs, bread fruit, smoked fish, green fig, plantains and everything natural and healthy. She said this has contributed to her longevity.

Nicholas said she still goes to town to pay her bills and buy her groceries, and she feels very strong.

She thanks God for her milestone and looks forward to more years of life.

When SNO visited her residence, members of the Mount Olive Seventh-Day Adventist Church were present. The church members visit Nicholas, who lives alone, every Thursday and brings her breakfast every last Sunday of each month.

  4. That why people St. Lucia is in the state it is. St Lucian just are all about what they have. How about that's the bouquet she could afford.

  5. I doubt she would support bio- technology in agricultural production or eats inorganic food given the basics about them.
