Clean liv­ing helps bonny Bon­nie to hun­dred

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

BON­NIE Bartlett cel­e­brated her 100th birth­day on June 5 sur­rounded by fam­ily and friends, who say the cen­te­nar­ian still has a sense of hu­mour and a won­der­ful heart.

The Mercy Place Edge­wa­ter res­i­dent is a born and bred West Aus­tralian who puts her longevity down to not drink­ing or smok­ing.

After fin­ish­ing her school­ing at Su­bi­aco Pri­mary School, Mrs Bartlett worked as a seam­stress for many years.

She mar­ried Vic, who was good friends with her broth­ers, dur­ing World War II and the cou­ple went on to have three chil­dren.

Later in life, she took up bowls, where she ex­celled and won many tro­phies.

Mercy Place Edge­wa­ter ser­vice man­ager He­len Fullar­ton said Mrs Bartlett is an in­spir­ing lady whose fam­ily are ded­i­cated to her.

“Every­one at Mercy Place Edge­wa­ter likes and re­spects Bon­nie very much and we’re all de­lighted that she has reached this ma­jor mile­stone,” she said.

Mrs Bartlett cel­e­brated with her chil­dren, five grand­chil­dren and 10 great-grand­chil­dren.
