Family gathers to mark Marion’s 100th
Five generations of one family gathered on Thursday to celebrate the 100th birthday of remarkable Rutherglen great great gran, Marion Couse.
Provost Eileen Logan and Lord Lieutenant Mushtaq Ahmad were among the guests at Marion’s party at Dryburgh House within Rogerpark care home, who came along to present a card on behalf of the Queen.
Marion has two grandchildren, four great grandchildren and a great great granddaughter, Sophie McGovern (4), of Rutherglen.
Marion - mum of John and the late Marion and Ann - was born in Mill Street, Rutherglen, and grew up in the town. She worked as a welder during World War II, married cinema projectionist Alfred and moved to Tradeston.
Her father, William Cameron, was a special constable in Rutherglen.
“She is a very proud woman, is my mum,” said son John Cameron, who travelled from Leeds for the 100th birthday celebrations. She is quite well known in the Rutherglen area because she used to attend the Salvation Army lunch club on King Street.”
Staff at Rogerpark care home baked a special cake in honour of Marion’s milestone birthday.
