Our own resident Cora Hansen was 113 years old and lived at ValleyView Care Centre, Medicine Hat, Alberta. Cora was the confirmed oldest person in Canada. She was at one time the oldest person in Alberta, but was recognized as the oldest living Canadian.
Born in Minnesota to parents from Norway, she arrived before there were motorized cars, manned air flight and so much more. She lived a good life; “I didn’t drink, or anything like that. I lived a plain life…” said Hansen when interviewed by the Medicine Hat News recently. We were so blessed to know you Cora!
