Party for Myra’s 100th birthday
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.
