MURIEL Rose James is 100 years young this month. Mrs James, who lives at Coolibah Lodge, Man­durah was born in 1918 in a lit­tle house in Rail­way Ter­race, Sawyers Val­ley, which is still par­tially stand­ing to­day. She later left Sawyers Val­ley and moved to Cool­gar­die, where she met hus­band Tom. They mar­ried in 1940 and had four chil­dren. In 1957, the fam­ily moved to Perth and Mrs James has lived in Man­durah since 1990. Mrs James, who was a keen gar­dener, puts her longevity down to good food and ex­er­cise, a sense of hu­mour and a light beer at 5pm ev­ery day. Daugh­ter Gail Pas­coe said “she had been an amaz­ing mother”.
