Wellington’s Ginny Lezak Celebrates 100th Birthday

Friends and neighbors surround Ginny Lezak, who received flowers provided by the Wellington Community Foundation.

Wellington resident Virginia “Ginny” Lezak celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday, Feb. 4 with a party arranged by her friends and neighbors with some help from the Wellington Community Foundation.

Lezak may be 100 years old, but she remains amazingly active for a centenarian. She walks two miles every day around her community in Wellington’s Binks Forest neighborhood. No matter the weather, she is on the go, always accompanied by her trusted rosary beads. Lezak is a devout Catholic, who attends St. Rita Catholic Church daily. She was still driving until just one year ago, and her mind remains incredibly sharp. No matter what life may throw at her, she is always happy and cheerful.

Ginny Lezak was born on Feb. 4, 1924, in New York. She married her wonderful husband Walter in 1957, and they were married for more than 60 years. She took much joy in riding bicycles with her husband.

Lezak is mother to one daughter and has four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter.
