Doris Irwin headed for the century mark

Pat Crisp and Doris Irwin at the Marianna Women’s Club meeting Pat Crisp and Doris Irwin at the Marianna Women’s Club meeting Shelia Mader

Doris Irwin has seen a lot in her lifetime and has lived a very comfortable and successful life. Come January 26, Doris will celebrate her 100th birthday.  She began the celebration last Thursday as the Marianna Women’s Club honored her as the oldest member of the club. 

When interviewing Doris Irwin while she waited for the meeting to begin, she gave us her secret to her successful living, “I exercise every morning before I get out of bed. I pull my legs up towards my chin, just like riding the bicycle.” 

When asked how long she worked before retirement, Irwin brought a smile to those around her, “I feel like I’ve been working all my life. We had Riverside Grocery and Market.  You know it was three blocks from the courthouse.”

Doris Irwin remains active and helps out with the Women’s Club anyway she can and doesn’t have any intentions of slowing down, whether she’s 100 or 101.  

She has three children, Mary Jane Seymore and Norma Dillon who both live in Panama City and her son James (Jim) Carrell Irwin who lives in Tallahassee. 

The staff and publisher of the Jackson County Times wishes the very best birthday ever to Doris Irwin!
