LongeviQuest is pleased to announce the age validation of Emma Galode of Canada at age 112. She was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada on 22 August 1882. At the age of 26, she got married, and the couple had 1 daughter. Galode spent most of her life in Hamilton, where she operated a variety store with her husband. They retired in 1948.

At the age of 107, Galode remained independent, even taking the bus on her own for grocery shopping. However, in August 1993, shortly before her 111th birthday, she moved into Hillsdale Manor nursing home in Oshawa, Ontario. Despite her advanced age, Galode continued to use a walker to move around the nursing home at the age of 112.
