Ramsay White's Birds Quiz
Elsie Morton had originally planned a large party for her 100th birthday, having invited all her friends and extended family but unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, her party had to be cancelled.
But Elsie’s family were determined to celebrate and arranged a smaller gathering in her daughter, Sheila’s back garden where they were able to socially distance.
Sheila baked her mum a cake and the day was made extra special as members of her family travelled from across the UK to celebrate her big day.
And Elsie’s caregiver, Anne from Home Instead Senior Care Newcastle, joined in the celebrations.
Surrounded by friends, family, and caregivers, Elsie had a smile gleaming from ear to ear as she celebrated reaching her special milestone of a century.
Elsie said: "I never thought I’d make it to 100, I’ve only managed it with good fortune and lots of help from my caregiver Anne over the past five years.
"I moved to a bungalow in 1954 - it must be the lack of stairs which has helped!
"I feel so lucky to have met so many wonderful people throughout my life and I’m blessed to have such a marvellous family.”
Elsie met her husband, David, when she was only 17, living in the same street and attending the same church.
David was from Dundee and when she first set eyes on him, she said ‘she was not letting him go’.
Elsie was crushed when David was sent to war for six years and missed him dearly. When he returned the loving couple got married two weeks later.
Together the soul mates went on to have two children, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
David sadly passed away in 2000, but Elsie fondly remembers their long, happy marriage and twenty-two peaceful years of retirement together.
He taught her to drive, as well as how to play golf and play bridge - two hobbies she still enjoys today.
Elsie continued to play bridge with a local group up until lockdown scuppered their meet ups. She received 40 birthday cards from her bridge friends alone.
She loves being on a golf course and breathing in the open air, and although she now struggles to participate, she still loves to watch the sport.
