Happy 100th birthday

Graeagle resident Juanita Hansen, lovingly known as “Gigi,” turned 100 on Nov. 2. Family and friends celebrated the event with a surprise party attended by five generations. She has one son, Bryan (shown with her above), six grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. Juanita was born in Oakland on Nov. 2, 1919, and has been a lifelong California resident. For more than 75 years, she was an avid gardener and loved to travel the world. She believes the key to living to 100 is chocolate and brandy every day! Photo submitted
