03 October 2018

A resident at Queen Elizabeth Court in Llandudno, celebrated her 100th Birthday this week.

Gwyneth Jones enjoyed a big party at the Home with more than 40 of her family travelling from all over the UK to be with her. She was also thrilled to receive an official letter of Birthday congratulations from Her Majesty The Queen.

Gwyneth was born on October 1st 1918, shortly before the end of the First World War. She grew up in Myrtle Street in Liverpool. She met her late husband-to-be Bob while playing in the streets when she was fourteen.

Reflecting on life in the early 1930s, Gwyneth said: “They were the happiest times. Life was free and easy in those days.”

When asked if she had any life lessons to share, Gwyneth said: “Treat everybody the same way that you would like to be treated yourself. And be happy with what you’ve got.”

Activities Coordinator, Gary Carr, said: “It was a privilege to celebrate Gwyneth’s 100th Birthday with a party at our Home. Everyone had a great time and with so many of Gwyneth’s family travelling to be with her, it was a really wonderful occasion.”
