Hancock Resident Turns 105

PortagePointe in Hancock recently celebrated the 105th birthday of one of its residents.

Mary Altman grew up in Gregoryville, which was a French suburb of Lake Linden.

After high school she attended Hurley Hospital School of Nursing in Flint, and the school still sends her birthday gifts.

She worked in Flint before joining the Army as a first lieutenant during World War II.

Altman has visited all 48 contiguous U.S. states and has always enjoyed learning new things.

She says the key to her long life is a positive attitude.
