Miss Lavinia Turns 100
Lavinia Powell Smith, a longtime Hopkins Hospital employee, returned for a gala celebration on Feb. 15—her 100th birthday. Miss Lavinia worked at the hospital from 1948 to 1972, mostly in Central Stores (now Central Sterile Processing). Surrounded by 100 guests in the Houck Lobby of Phipps, she was showered with tributes from hospital administrators, family, friends and former colleagues. The event, said organizer Sandy Johnson of HR illustrates the power of relationships formed during a 24-year Hopkins career. Miss Lavinia lives with her 64-year-old daughter in Abington, Md., where she works crosswords and plays computer games. "Talk about a sharp mind," said Jerome Gilliam, a 41-year Central Sterile employee. "Miss Lavinia is truly blessed."
