101 Birthday-4932

Chef Martin Venegas & Ruth Passavant (101 yrs old)

TEMECULA, Calif. (Nov. 19, 2014) – Not many people can say they have seen the advent of indoor plumbing, the automobile, the telephone, radio, or television, let alone living through the women’s suffrage movement, the Great Depression, and the administrations of 17 United States presidents. Ruth Passavant of Seal Beach, Calif. is one of those people. For her 101st birthday, she made one of her regular bus trips to Pechanga Resort & Casino. Ruth, her granddaughter, three-year old great granddaughter and friend from her senior community celebrated her milestone (she says everything after 100 is a milestone) with a low key, yet upscale dinner at the resort’s Great Oak Steakhouse. Following dinner, the restaurant’s chef brought Ruth her favorite dessert, a crème brȗlée with glazed fruit. As the sprightly senior posed for a photo with the chef Martin Venegas, she turned to him and said, “My, you’re handsome,” to which the chef noticeably blushed.
