Bray-Bargo celebrates 100th birthday
How many people live 100-years-old, recover from COVID-19 in their 90s, survive dialysis for four years and still look like an add for Pond’s Cold Cream? Phyllis Bray-Bargo, who recently celebrated her birthday.
Bray-Bargo is the mother of five children, widow of two husbands and pet owner of many beloved dogs and most recently, a loved cat, named Sophie. She lived her married life in Vulcan, then moved to Iron Mountain. When she needed more help, she lived two years with daughter and son-in-law, Sally and the late Jerry Hampton. She now resides at Lakeview Assisted Living, which she enjoys.
The staff at the dialysis center have also celebrated with Bray-Bargo, as have the staff of the Delta Area Transit Authority, who help Bray-Bargo get to her appointments. All the DATA bus drivers call her by name.
