LongeviQuest is delighted to announce the age validation of Hazel Urie of Canada at age 110. She was born in Huron County, near the village of Seaforth in Ontario, Canada, on 17 September 1903 (claimed 28 September). Urie grew up on a farm in the tiny town of Winthrop. After business school, she landed a job at Ford in Windsor, where she met her husband. The couple had two sons and eventually moved to Oakville.

Urie remained active, volunteering at the hospital and church, playing cards, and enjoying hobbies like tennis and bridge. Even at 100, she continued giving back to her community.

Urie’s 110th birthday drew loved ones from the US and Norway for a five-generation celebration. At 100, she was still lucid. Urie still had a sharp wit, still walked with a walker, and loved country music. Her son attributed her longevity to her refusal to accept aging’s limitations.

Urie passed away at Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, on 1 August 2014, at the age of 110 years, 318 days. At the time of her death, she was the second-oldest (known) living person in Ontario, behind Orma Slack.

LongeviQuest congratulates Hazel Urie’s family on her posthumous recognition.
