Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
