Moyola resident Kath Erwin celebrated her 101st birthday on Tuesday.January 10, 2013 11:26am
Moyola resident Kath Erwen has notched up another milestone, celebrating her 101st birthday with friends.
Kath was born on January 8, 1912, the first of three children, and lived her early years with the family at Colbinabbin before moving to Harston Grange, Tatura when she was seven.
The family later sold the farm and moved to Elwood and it was here she became involved in music, studying at the Melbourne Conservatorium.
Kath still plays the piano on a regular basis for residents, and was the ‘‘life of the party’’ this time last year, when she celebrated her centenary the only way she knows how, by tickling the ivories. She still enjoys a walk.
Kath has apparently ‘‘enjoyed good health all her life’’, and puts her longevity down to ‘‘being happy’’.
An approach was made by the Guardian on Thursday for a photo. Unfortunately, Kath declined to have her photo taken this year.
‘‘I hate having my photo taken,’’ she reportedly told Moyola staff.
As turning 101 is a wonderful celebration, the paper has gone with a picture taken on her 100th birthday last year.
The Guardian wished Kath a happy birthday, and hoped she had an enjoyable day.
