What a special day! Fancy celebrating your 100th Birthday on Good Friday surrounded by all your family and friends. Edna (but she loves to be called Joyce) Smith turned 100 on Good Friday 2nd April and I was lucky to be present for a short period of time to present her with Congrats letters and certificates.
I was at Jan (her daughter) and Jim Nicholson’s home in Marburg and what a delightful hour it was. Just some snippets of her life and comments from the family:
. Mother of 2, Grandmother of 10
. Great Grandmother of 2 and Great Great Grandmother of 1
. Born and raised in the Murgon/Kingaroy area and one of 7 children
. Lived for many years at Haigslea then to Kalbar and now in Marburg
. Tendered to cattle and farming life well into her 70s
. Always remembered the kids and grandkids etc birthdays
. Loved to make clothes for her family
. Always had time for her huge extended family
. I COULD SEE THAT THEY LOVE HER DEARLY
