FIVE gen­er­a­tions of Lina Sharp’s fam­ily came to­gether to cel­e­brate her 103rd birth­day in Mun­dar­ing. Clas­si­cal pi­ano mu­sic, cake and about 130 de­scen­dants made the oc­ca­sion spe­cial with staff at Bap­tist­care Yal­lam­bee Res­i­den­tial Care. Lina is the old­est res­i­dent at the care fa­cil­ity. Yal­lam­bee life­style co-or­di­na­tor Aureen Don­ald­son said the great-great-great-grand­mother, for­mer ball­room dancer and cham­pion high diver was a pop­u­lar com­mu­nity mem­ber. “Lina is a vi­brant and positive lady who at 103 is still ac­tive, beau­ti­fully dressed, groomed and witty,” she said. The cen­te­nar­ian shared her re­cent birth­day with fel­low res­i­dent June How­ell, who turned 90 on the same day.
