LongeviQuest is pleased to announce that Montreal, Canada has a new supercentenarian. Maria Lacasse has recently celebrated her 110th birthday, surrounded by her family and friends. It was shared that Lacasse is confident that she will blow out the candles not only for her 111th birthday but also for her 112th. Despite her impressive age, she has not lost any of her lucidity.
Maria Lacasse was born in Chertsey, Lanaudière, Canada on 4 December 1913. Lacasse’s caretakers describe her as a joy to work with, always smiling and eager to help, despite the demanding nature of their job. They spend almost more time with her than with their own families. Lacasse surprisingly claims that her bad temper is actually the key to her long life. To live a long time, she says, you need to be “uncomfortable.”
