A Special Valentines Day for Winnie Hook

A Special Valentines Day for Winnie Hook

Surrounded by friends and family, Winnie Hook celebrated her 105th birthday at her home on February 14. Born in 1906, just months before the “Big San Francisco Earthquake,” she and her husband moved to Santa Clara in 1927. Hook fondly recalls that Santa Clara was a “small, friendly and pleasant town with five stores who would deliver your groceries.”

A proud stay-at-home mom who made all of her children’s clothes, Hook was also active in the Catala Woman’s Club, the Santa Clara Doll Club and Saint Clare’s Choir. She has two daughters, 15 grandchildren, 39 great grand children, and 15 great-great grand children. Asked about the reason for her long life, she states emphatically, “moderation in all things.”
