Celebrations as Jean marks 100th birthday
There were celebrations in Blairgowrie on Saturday as Jean Torkington celebrated her 100th birthday.
Born in Gretna Green on September 24, 1922, Jean grew up in Carlisle.
She got married in July 1945 and moved to Edinburgh where the couple raised their two children, Kay and Richard.
In 2002 Jean moved to Blairgowrie to be near her daughter Kay and her family.
Jean, who also has two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, enjoyed an afternoon celebration surrounded by family and friends, cake, flowers and cards from friends both locally and around the world.
