I admired this woman a lot. And her family that took such great care of her. She will be missed.

Maybe my former neighbor, Ida Chadwick is the oldest living Panamanian. From Ida´s bio on Facebook she was born on December 31, 1905. Ida is originally from Ancón Panama. I knew Ida as a neighbor while living in Las Cumbres. Ida currently lives in Columbia, South Carolina with (I believe) a son.
