Schoellkopf Health Center resident Florence Johnson Irish turned the tables on her 90th birthday on Monday. Instead of receiving gifts, she and her family made a gift of her oil painting of Niagara Falls with her family dedicating the gift to the nursing facility.
Florence's daughter, Cheryl Irish-Butera of Youngstown, said it was her family's way of saying thank you for the excellent care Florence receives.

Florence, whose paintings have hung in private collections in the U.S. and Europe, signed the back of her artwork as daughter Cheryl watched.
