Together Housing resident celebrated her 103rd Birthday!

Willow Court resident Marjorie celebrated her 103rd birthday last week.

Marjorie is originally from Shropshire but refers to herself as a ‘Yorkshire lass’ after moving over to Halifax back in 1947, after her husband secured a job as the Head Teacher of a local high school.

They were both keen caravaners and loved nothing more than spending their summers exploring the UK. They continued to travel long into their retirement, making memories that will stay with Marjorie forever. Marjorie recalls, “We loved our caravan holidays, particularly down south. But we travelled all over the country together, I don’t think there was a summer we didn’t go somewhere new.”

After two children, five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, the couple decided that at 92 it was time to find themselves somewhere they could call their final home.

Since the day it opened its doors 10 years ago, Marjorie has been a resident at Willow Court in Elland, taking part in all the social activities she could. Marjorie said,” I’ve made more friendships since living here than I have in my entire life, there’s always something for me to do and I never feel like I’m alone – especially since my husband passed.”

Marjorie’s best friend Lucie says they spend a lot of their time telling each other stories from their past over a cup of tea, or playing their favorite game – Dominos.

Happy 103rd Birthday Marjorie!
