Doreen Horsburgh recently celebrated her 100th birthday among family and friends at a party in her honour at Abbey Gardens Aged Care Facility.
Having moved to Abbey Gardens only in the last 12 months, Doreen was joined by her 97-year-old “spring chicken” husband Jim who still lives in their home in Nyora.
Originally from Loch, Doreen met Jim in the mid-1940s, and they were married in 1948. They made their home in the Nyora area where they owned a farm.
They had four children – Mary, Elaine, Malcolm and Ashley - and have eight grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
Doreen received letter of congratulation from the Queen, the Prime Minister and the Governor-General.
