Home/Uncategorized/HIP HOP AND HAPPENING SENIOR – November 2019


Hip Hop and Happening Senior is a new segment that allows us to celebrate a senior in our service area that is living his or her best life.

Merle Boswell, 91 years old, of Lebanon, Illinois is our first Hip Hop and Happening senior.

Originally from Pensacola, Florida, Merle and her husband, now deceased, moved to Lebanon more than 20 years ago.

Merle enjoys fishing, working in her garden, attending church at the First Baptist Church of O’Fallon, reading, and visiting with her daughter who lives in O’Fallon and her two granddaughters, who live in Texas and New York.

Daily exercise is important to Merle. She enjoys riding her indoor recumbent bike, and walking. Her exercise mantra is “I do what I feel like”.

AgeSmart Community Resources was fortunate to meet Merle when she stopped by the office to meet with one of our counselors and learn about senior insurance options.

Merle’s advice for a happy and healthy life is “Live a good, clean life, and marry a wonderful man”.

If you know a Hip Hop and Happening senior, let us know!   We would love to share their story!
