Age: 94
Home: St. Paul Village
Interests: Living Boldly

Astar Daniels has led an extraordinary life.  The 94 year old resident of St. Paul Village has published a book, climbed the Great Pyramids, been a passenger on a zero gravity flight, bungee jumped in Australia, walked barefoot across burning coals, and painted a portrait of television icon James Arness.

One thing that she hasn’t done is rappel off of a ten story building…which will change on June 12th when Astar goes Over the Edge to raise money for Episcopal Retirement Homes Affordable Living, a cause that is near and dear to her heart.  “I love living at St. Paul Village.  We have such good programs and activities to choose from. Recently we had a Senior Prom and I danced up a storm!” 

Astar can hardly wait for her opportunity to give back to the organization that has given so much to her. “The Lord has just blessed me with so much…and now He has blessed me with the opportunity to raise money for Affordable Living. I prayed for an opportunity like this, I pray every day for people…and when you pray for others you realize just how lucky you are.”
