We tell many different stories around here, and there are lots of different events going on in southern Manitoba, but every once in a while a unique story comes to our attention. A short time ago, Marie Rempel from Steinbach gave us a call and told us about her mother-in-law Justina. Justina turned 108 on Sunday! 108!! And if that's all that we told you, it would be enough to classify as amazing, but Marie and her brother-in-law Henry joined us on the Morning Show to tell us more..
Wow! Life experiences that most of us can't even imagine. What a survivor!! And STILL going strong. Marie was married to Justina's oldest son, who has passed. And it was so great that she joined us to talk about this amazing mother-in-law of hers. Marie shared with us what do she thinks are some of the qualities that have kept Justina going this long?
Marie Rempel, daughter-in-law, and Henry Rempel, son of Justina Rempel, held a celebration on Sunday at Maplewood Manor to honor Justina and a big cake so that all the residents could share in the celebration, and 108 years calls for some serious celebrating! What an accomplishment and what a life full of stories she must have!
We wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY Justina, and special times surrounded by family this Christmas season!
