100 and going strong!

CC publicist Bernadette Hoyer’s mom, Mary Wroblewski, celebrated her 100th birthday on May 12th. She was treated to a loud and flashy drive-by featuring Fanwood’s first responders in honor of Bernadette’s late husband Bob who was a member of the Fanwood Rescue Squad.

Bernadette Hoyer and Mary Wroblewski surrounded by Fanwood’s finest, EMTs and firefighters.

Mary was born in Newark to parents who were immigrants to the U.S. from Russia (father) and Austria (mother). She left high school to support her family and later earned her GED and worked her way through beauty school. She was both a hairdresser and clerical worker, retiring from PSE&G in 1989.

Mary resides in Scotch Plains, enjoys reading, gardening, bird watching and online shopping. Happy Birthday to Mary and congrats to Bernadette!
