HUGO, Colo. -- A Hugo woman reached a milestone recently when she turned 110 years old.

Hazel Eikermann has lived at the Lincoln Community Hospital in Hugo since 2013. Originally from Kansas, the former farm girl married her husband in 1933 and then moved to Colorado.

At 110 years old, Hazel is still with it.

“Hazel is this spunky 110 year old woman who really enjoys sleep and her chocolate shakes,” said Billie Given, one of Hazel’s nurses.

To celebrate Hazel’s birthday, the hospital brought her on a helicopter ride over Genoa-Hugo school.

Students and staff placed a giant "110" sign on the school’s field for her to see.
