Cholie Slice Lives Long By ‘Helping Somebody Else’

Posted on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 at 3:14 pm. Posted to Community, Faith.

What is the secret of a long and happy life? Mrs. Cholie Slice will tell you, “It’s helping somebody else. That’s all I’ve ever done.”

Mrs. Slice is the Town of Chapin’s most senior citizen. On August 19 she will turn 103.cholie2

The week after Mother’s Day this year, she moved out of the house on Lexington Avenue where she has lived since 1938, and into a room at Generations of Chapin. While she can’t say much for the food service, she is pleased that she has more company than she had when living alone. She says she has seen “so many people” who know her, who stop by and visit.

She has made many acquaintances over the years, having worked in the lunchroom at Chapin Schools for 21 years, beginning in 1949. Then she worked another four years as a cook at the first of “Knocky” Jackson’s restaurants by the Red and White grocery store (where Chapin Furniture is now located).

She gave up cooking for the public in 1971, but she stayed busy carrying food to her mother, who had broken her hip and was in the Lowman Home. While she was there she volunteered to assist in the care of other elderly residents, before being hired as a nurse’s assistant. She worked there for five years.
