Mercedes Hernandez Girard, age 106, passed away Sunday October 23, 2022, after a long gentle battle with old age.

Born in 1916 in Santa Barbara, California, she was witness to an ever changing world in the last century. She made deliveries from her family’s dairy farm by horse and wagon, she saw men on the moon, and drones flying on Mars. An entire century of amazing innovation and advances.
