  • MILFORD - Belle Reve resident Sarah Dunn is living life to the fullest! She turned 103 years old on April 2, 2014 and the Belle Reve community and staff members were there to help celebrate.
        Dunn’s parents were born in Italy and she is a first-generation American. They were “old school” Italians and were very family-oriented and religious. She was one of eight children, and only has one brother still living, who resides in Texas.
        She was married and she and her husband enjoyed traveling around the world. They lived in New York City and she worked as an executive secretary for an electric appliance company in Manhattan, but had to hide that she was married because married women in that time were not supposed to work. She was also not allowed to socialize with any employees because she knew so many company secrets. Dunn was an avid golfer during her retirement and she is said to be the first woman in New Jersey to hit a hole in one.
        She has been a resident at Belle Reve since 2008 and enjoys many activities and events to keep her busy during her retirement years. She appreciates everything the Belle Reve staff and residents did for her birthday, and is looking forward to many more memories living at Belle Reve.
