If, as the saying goes, "age is but a number," for Ethel Engstrom, it's 104. Born two months premature on April 14, 1906, in Saskatchewan, Canada, Engstrom arrived during a time when hospital emergency care for premature babies was virtually non-existent. She also was born partially deaf, the result of her mother contracting the German measles.

She is my Great Aunty on my Father's side. And I can tell you, she is a spit fire. She still wears her red haired wig! She is now 108 and still has her own teeth is you can imagine! She works with a friend of the family to write stories of the families past.
