A resident from Uniting Roberts Lodge in Peakhurst in New South Wales has celebrated her 104th birthday.
Resident Marguerite Winkley was born in Kolkata in India in 1916 and has eight siblings.
Ms Winkley said hard work and her job as a midwife kept her going.
“I remember riding my bicycle to patients in the blackouts during the war,” Ms Winkely said.
Ms Winkley and her husband emigrated to Australia after the war and settled in Sydney.
Ms Winkley celebrated her 104th birthday with her friends at Roberts Lodge with balloons and chocolate cake.
She enjoys painting, music, playing scrabble with other residents, attends social activities and is part of Roberts Lodge’s House Band.
