I am 92 years old and I have lived in George Pearson Centre for 28 years. I was born in Saskatchewan and lived on a farm there with my six brothers, five sisters, and my parents. My parents were originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. One of my chores was to feed the chickens and the turkeys; we had 36 turkeys on the farm.
I was very close with one of my older sisters, who I lived with for five years before coming to George Pearson. My sister has recently passed away. I never married, but I have lots of nieces and nephews.
Over the years I have enjoyed taking part in the different activities here, but I don’t participate anymore. Now I just want to rest; I am very, very tired. I do have two nephews who come to visit me regularly, though, and I enjoy that.
