105-Year-Old Former St. Charles Resident Margaret Pace Dies

Woman whose family spanned six generations was the oldest resident of South Elgin’s Tower Hill Healthcare Center.

Born in a home with no electricity and a hand crank for water in the kitchen, Margaret Pace had lived through two world wars, the Great Depression and the Great Recession. She outlived both of her children — and three husbands. She died Monday at age 105, the Kane County Chronicle reported Thursday.

The matriarch of a family spanning six generations, before her death, she was the oldest resident of South Elgin’s Tower Hill Healthcare Center. You can read more about this native of Milford, Ill., as seen through the eyes of her great-granddaughter, in her Kane County Chronicle obituary.
