Marj celebrates 100 years

Ms Marj Oliver celebrated her 100th birthday in Umina on April 8.

She is now one of 10 people at the Peninsula Village aged care facility aged more than 100.

The physical distancing restrictions due to Covid-19 curtailed her celebrations but her sister and brother-in-law made a brief visit.

However, she received a lot of attention through social media, according to Village chief executive Mr Shane Neaves, when her picture was posted and attracted dozens of shares and about 300 messages from well-wishers.

“Marj still resides in an independent living unit,” Mr Neaves said.
