100th milestone celebrated
A Manjimup great-grandmother and longtime CWA member celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday surrounded by family and friends.
Mary Morey was born in England in 1920 and moved to Australia because her parents Bob and Mabel Dorrell wanted to start a new life as farmers.
The family settled at Dunkerton farm, near Manjimup, and began farming sheep and pigs.
Mrs Morey married Eric Morey in 1949 and they moved to Doopenup Flats, Woodanilling, Wagin and then Marrivale farm at Burekup.
Mrs Morey and her late husband had four children, seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
She has been living at Baptistcare Moonya Residential Care since 2013.
On Sunday, 20 members of Mrs Morey’s family visited her at Moonya with balloons and a cake to celebrate her birthday.
Mrs Morey said she believed in taking vitamins to support her health and taking prompt action for injuries and ailments.
Baptistcare Moonya residential care manager Nicolle Warren said it had been lovely working with Mrs Morey’s family to organise her milestone celebration.
“We had a calendar at the spot where Mary loves to sit in the dining room and she crossed off the days until her birthday,” she said.
“All her friends here at Baptistcare Moonya wish her a very happy 100th birthday.”
