A. Marie Bastian (at right) was born Sept. 12, 1910. She celebrated her 106th birthday at Providence Ojai with her daughter, Betty Brodowy (left). Bastian came to Ojai 50 years ago from Wisconsin when her doctor advised her to move to a warmer climate. Bastian proudly remembers shaking hands with Eleanor Roosevelt while working in a Work Projects Administration (WPA) office in Milwaukee.
