Southern Care Resident, Marie Aultman Celebrates 100th Birthday Feb. 27

TIFTON, Ga. (February 18, 2015) – Julia “Marie” Aultman, a resident at Southern Care Assisted Living, will turn 100 years old on February 28.

 A native of Quitman, Brooks County, Aultman was born in 1915, two years before America entered the First World War. She is the third of 11 children (six brothers and four sisters) born to her parents.

 ► A celebration honoring Aultman is planned for Friday, Feb. 27, at 2 p.m., at Southern Care Assisted Living, 1934 Whiddon Mill Road, Tifton, Ga.

Aultman was married for 63 years to the late Robert Aultman. Recalling her wedding day, she stated very directly that she and Mr. Aultman, who grew up in the same neighborhood, “went to town on a Saturday night, went to the preacher’s house, got married and then went to the movies.”

Having spent most of her married life as a homemaker, Aultman says of all the places in the world, her favorite is “Tifton, Ga. – it’s home.”

Aultman moved to Southern Care Assisted Living in January 2009. She enjoys many things about her life at Southern Care, most of all the activities. She is especially fond of “bingo and the butterbean auction.”

When she is not participating in one of the organized activities at Southern Care, she will likely be found doing a word search or playing cards with other residents.

Revealing her secret to longevity, Aultman said: “I’ve never been sick, no pain, no broken bones, no scars.”
