Life Care Centers of America

On June 23, 2021, Life Care Center of Bridgeton, Missouri, was the location of much merriment for one particular resident – Sylvia Kunin.

It was Sylvia’s 100th birthday, and she happily lived up the occasion at the facility’s party for her, complete with a dozen red roses and nonstop gifts of chocolate kisses (her favorite)! Family and friends surrounded her to wish her a happy birthday.

Sylvia was born in 1921 to Harry and Molley Kitchner in Saint Louis, Missouri. At age 23, she married Dan Kunin, and they had three children: Keith, Jeffrey and Sheila. The couple was married for 50 years, and their family has expanded to include many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Sylvia has been a loved resident at Life Care Center of Bridgeton since Nov. 30, 2016.

“You can always find Sylvia sitting peacefully with her chocolates and telling someone, ‘Honey, I love you!’” said Tawanda Story, executive director.
