For International Women’s Day, Le Cambridge (340, boulevard Hymus, Pointe-Claire) celebrated the life of an amazing senior who just turned 100 years old. Agatha Frenette, who hit the century mark on March 8., was born in New Brunswick and lived on a farm. She took her first job at the age of 16 years old. She moved to Montreal in 1940 and found a job at Northern Electric. Agatha got married to Emory Frenette and soon after they started their family and had a happy life.
She has been living at the Cambridge for over 10 years now and loves it. She is still autonomous and does her own groceries every Wednesday with the shuttle service. She enjoys playing bingo and has helped as a volunteer at the church services at the residence. Agatha has a remarkable memory and has many great stories to tell — especially her abilities to overcome life’s challenges and determination to make the most of each day.
