Resident Profile: Joseph Thorne

Joseph ThorneBeloved by his neighbors, Mr. Joseph Thorne is St. Charles Parish Housing Authority’s oldest resident.

He was born in Morgan City, La. on Feb. 22, 1924, but he lived in and worked for St. Charles Parish from 1966 until he retired. A desire to be independent caused the Boutte Estates resident to ride his bicycle daily until 2016.

Although he does not dwell on the past often, he can be seen sitting on his porch daily pondering the hobby he loves most – fishing.  His fishing stories are a joy to hear.

Central to his life is his devotion to God and serving at his church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church.

We all wish Mr. Thorne many more happy years.
