Adelina Filocamo reached another milestone as she turned 102 last week at Shallotte Assisted Living. Family and friends were on hand to wish the centenarian well at the March 18 celebration.
Filocamo was born in Brazil and grew up in Italy. She also lived in New York and worked as a seamstress. She drove until she was 90, said Matresse McAllister, administrator at Shallotte Assisted Living.
Filocamo is a familiar sight at the Mulberry Street facility, where she has lived for the past two years with Marco, her prized, purebred Shih Tzu dog.
