Edith Miller Moscou ’40 (mother of Ellen Moscou ’63 Co) recently celebrated her 100th birthday at her retirement community at Atria West 86 in New York City.
Moscou was born and raised in Brooklyn, and worked in her husband’s law office. In several interviews highlighting her centenary birthday, Edith shared her advice. She suggested that, “everyone should stay active in whatever they can because by doing so, they will be able to enjoy the years that are coming.” She also suggested that each person “make the best of each day”.
We are happy to hear of her happy life, and celebrate this Packer family!

Eric told his family's story alongside his photographs in a recent NPR piece.
“For the last year, my ngin ngin (grandmother) and ye ye (grandfather) were confined to their two-story home to protect themselves from COVID-19. It felt strange to ring their doorbell and walk into where I spent many days after preschool. While it felt so familiar, it was also so different.”
