Party for Myra’s 100th birth­day

The Oban Times - - News -

A FOR­MER nurse from Eas­dale cel­e­brated her 100th birth­day last Fri­day.

Myra Mclach­lan (MacCal­lum from her first mar­riage), who was for­merly known as MacQueen, was born on Eas­dale Is­land on July 14, 1917, dur­ing the Great War.

Her fa­ther Don­ald was one of the well-known MacQueens who were boat builders on the slate is­land for many gen­er­a­tions.

Myra trained as a nurse in Glas­gow be­fore re­turn­ing to Oban, where she worked in sev­eral of the dif­fer­ent Oban hos­pi­tals in the 1950s and 1960s, be­com­ing well­known as Sis­ter MacQueen.

Myra is now a res­i­dent at the North Ar­gyll Care Home. She was de­lighted to cel­e­brate the mile­stone with her fam­ily and friends – es­pe­cially when she re­ceived a birth­day card from the Queen.

Friends and fam­ily helped Myra cel­e­brate – as did the Queen’s birth­day card.
