Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

In 1950, Bert pur­chased a prop­erty on the Goul­burn River at Mitchel­stown where he and Neil farmed sheep and cat­tle, lucerne and grain crops.

Heather was two years old when the fam­ily moved to Mitchel­stown and Bob was born in 1953.

The chil­dren rode push bikes three miles to the Ta­bilk State School.

In 1966 the farm was sold to Ross Shelmer­dene and Lady Marigold (nee Myer)to be­come Mitchel­ton Win­ery.

Edie and Bert re­tired to a home in River Street on Lake Nagam­bie.

In 1970 they en­joyed a world trip to­gether.

Sadly, Bert passed away in 1993 and Edie stayed in her home manag­ing very well with daily visits and care by her fam­ily un­til a cou­ple of years ago.

She now lives with her daugh­ter Lor­raine and her hus­band Jim Web­ster.

At 102 years of age Edith en­joys qui­eter life, see­ing her fam­ily and friends and en­joys see­ing the beauty of na­ture around her, and loves be­ing in a gar­den.

Her daugh­ter Heather came over from Perth for her 102nd birth­day and looked af­ter Edie for a few weeks while Lor­raine and Jim had a break.

Heather and her sis­ter Val, and Edie’s sis­ter Nola (90 on Aus­tralia day) had an en­joy­able time at a party lunch at the Royal Mail Ho­tel.

Heather made the cake, a replica recipe of de­li­cious le­mon cake that Prince Harry and Meghan had for their wed­ding.

Edie said the folk at the Royal Mail Ho­tel were very kind to her and the fam­ily on her spe­cial day and thanked them all for mak­ing her 102nd birth­day a happy one and to all who sent her flow­ers, cards, and best wishes.

BIRTH­DAY CEL­E­BRA­TION: Nagam­bie’s old­est cit­i­zen, Edith Perry, cel­e­brates her 102nd birth­day with daugh­ters Val and Heather and her sis­ter Nola.
