Virginia Behman, a resident at Life Care Center of Hilton Head, just turned 100.


Behman’s family and friends celebrated the occasion with her on July 21, 2017, with a party. During the celebration, she was inducted into Life Care Centers of America’s Century Club for centenarians and presented with a certificate and pin.


When Behman was getting ready to blow out the birthday candles on her cake, she was asked what she was going to wish for.


“All I can wish for is more happiness for everyone, for all of you,” she replied, before blowing out all the candles in one try.


Born in Cleveland, Ohio, on July 23, 1917, Behman was married to Stanley Behman and had two children – a daughter and a son. She loved to cook and was very active in her church in her younger days. She sang in the choir and cooked for different church functions and special occasions.


When asked her secret to long life, Behman said, “No secrets… I’m just fortunate to live to see 100 years of life."
