Margie Jackson celebrated her 75th birthday Wednesday. She’s also celebrating being a resident at KershawHealth’s Karesh Long Term Care Center, or Karesh Wing, for 40 years. Celena Traynham, a Karesh Wing activity therapist, works closely with Jackson and said she has been touched and inspired by Jackson’s story -- one she felt should be shared with the community.
