Dear Olga,
On July 15, 2021, we will honor and celebrate your century of life. This is an incredible milestone, but not nearly as incredible as you are. May your 100th Birthday be filled with never-ending joy and pleasure. May you continue to enjoy the journey of life. We wish you good health, perfect peace of mind, and everlasting happiness from your beautiful family: your daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Happy 100th birthday!

Editor’s note:
Olga Payes moved to Tidewater from Belarus in 1996 as part of the Soviet Jewish Resettlement Program (now The New Americans Program). She made the move with her daughter, Irina Babichenko and her family. Payes still lives in the Wards Corner area of Norfolk, and as her friend, Galina Kastin notes, “She’s very independent…especially for her age.”
