My mother has been a resident at Lewisville Estates for about four years and recently we had to move her because she needed more care. It was regrettable that we had to move because we had grown to consider Lewisville Estates home. That is about the greatest compliment I can give to the staff at Lewisville Estates and the management at Tarantino Properties. Home is a place where one can feel comfortable, at peace and surrounded by loving, caring people. We found that at Lewisville Estates and are very grateful to every person there.
100-Year-Old North Texan, World War II Pilot Martha Cowan Celebrates Lifetime Of Breaking Gender Barriers Back
LEWISVILLE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A World War II pilot, a shipbuilder and now Martha Cowan is a centenarian.
There was a surprise birthday party in Lewisville Wednesday, March 24, for an exceptional woman who has lived a life breaking down gender barriers.
Her head barely visible over the dashboard, Cowan may be little, but this was her big day.
She arrived for her parade and birthday party at the Lewisville Estates Assisted Living Center.
When asked how it feels to be 100, Cowan responded, “Feels the same way as being less than 100 but I’ve had a wonderful life and I’ve had a lot of wonderful experiences.”
Experiences include being one of the few female pilots to fly for the US Army Air Corp during World War II.
When asked, “What it was like to be a pilot, a female pilot back in those days of World War II?,” Cowan responded, “Scary.”
