The residents of Merville-Franceville-Plage, Calvados department in France, have installed a bench in one of the village streets.
This bench is intended for a 101 year old lady. Giselle Bisson does her shopping herself and absolutely walks on foot.
The people decided to make the path easier for the oldest woman in their village.
The bench was placed on the sidewalk so that Madame Giselle could rest halfway.
“I thank them all, I take advantage of this gift and afterwards, people will benefit from it,” declared Giselle Bisson in a report produced by TF1.
The municipal team installed the bench on the woman’s route, between her house and the store where the centenarian goes to do her shopping, so that she can rest a little before continuing her journey.
The bench bears a plaque with his name.
When the famous resident of the village sits down on her bench to rest, there is always someone with whom she chats.
Her nephew Pascal explained to TF1 that despite her age, his aunt is a very independent and very active woman.
“Aunt Giselle doesn’t want us to help her. She manages everything herself,” her nephew said.
A neighbor, admired by her energy, adds: “She seems younger. Madame Giselle goes up to the second floor quite lightly. She’s a superb woman.”
Pascal says that those who know his aunt will never stop remembering her.
