Congratulations to Lillian in Reynella who turned 100 on the weekend! It was a privilege to spend time with her and discuss how life has changed over her journey.
Lillian was kind enough to share some delightful stories including one about how she met her late husband.
They were both into ballroom dancing and had different partners but one day Lillian was about to hit the floor and her dance partner was missing. Her “husband to be” swooped in and introduced himself and offered to dance with her. They went on to win the competition and their love blossomed from that moment. Later, Lillian learnt that her "proper" dance partner missed his dance with Lillian because he was locked in the men’s toilet and yes, her husband admitted he was responsible.
Lillian also had a great outlook on her longevity and put reaching triple figures down to a life of "working hard and having fun."
