Andalusia woman, 100, crowned Ms. Ala. Nursing Home

Ms. Felma Schrimshire was crowned Ms. Alabama Nursing Home during the Ms. Alabama Nursing Home Pageant held at The Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover on Monday, July 25. She was crowned by Miss Alabama 2011 Courtney Porter, who was co-host of the event. 

Ms. Schrimshire, age 100, is a resident at Andalusia Manor in Andalusia. She was born and raised in Covington County and later moved to several places to work before retiring in Andalusia.

She began teaching Sunday School when she was only 12 years old and taught for 78 years. Ms. Schrimshire has traveled to all 50 states, every Canadian province and several European countries. Ms. Schrimshire, who lives at Andalusia Manor with her sister, enjoys Bible study and encourages her fellow residents to get involved with nursing home activities. 

As Ms. Alabama Nursing Home, Ms. Schrimshire will travel to various nursing homes and community events to share her experiences. During her reign, she will also serve as an ambassador for nursing home residents at several Alabama Nursing Home Association events. 

The runners-up are:

1st Runner-up: Bessie Smitherman, Ms. Shelby Ridge Rehab Select, Alabaster, Age 90

2nd Runner-up: Katherine Sanders, Ms. Arbor Springs Health & Rehab, Opelika, Age 76

3rd Runner up: Verma Reeves, Ms. Lineville Health & Rehab, Lineville, Age 89

4th Runner up: Mary Lois Shannon, Ms. Willow Trace Nursing Center, Butler, Age 101 

The top 10 finalists from the field of 75 contestants had individual interviews with the panel of celebrity judges before competing on stage for the crown. All of the other contestants in attendance were part of the Honor Court and were individually recognized during the pageant. 

"Each lady is a winner because she is actively involved in the life of her nursing home and shares her optimistic outlook on life with her fellow residents," Alabama Nursing Home Association Executive Director Louis Cottrell said. "All of the ladies that participated are wonderful ambassadors of their individual nursing homes and long-term care in our state."
