Bertha Komor, a resident of Village Gate of Farmington, had her wish to pet a penguin granted, thanks to our Central Connecticut chapter. Komor, who will turn 105 in December, has been a resident of Village Gate at Farmington for several years. Her husband passed away after 72 years of marriage together. When Komor was younger and more mobile, she helped with activities and other residents in the facility. Komor is well known throughout Village Gate for being caring and kind to everyone she meets. When asked why she wants to pet a penguin, she replied “because they are adorable and my favorite animal!” Thank you to Mystic Aquarium for helping to grant this very special wish!
