Centenarian - Karin Jaeger

Karin Jaeger

Belmont Village Geneva Road, Carol Stream, IL
Born May 7, 1917

“I was 17 years old when I moved to the U.S. from Bergen, Norway. My friend and I came over on a Norwegian military ship in 1934 and arrived in New York City, then jumped on a greyhound bus to Chicago. My great-aunt, who I had never met before, took me in and got me started. I settled down in Chicago for the rest of my life. It’s amazing to look back and think about the long journey I made to get to where I am today.”
