Woman's 100th birthday celebration attracts 120

More than 120 relatives, friends and well-wishers gathered at Everglades Country Club on December 7 to celebrate the 100th birthday of Umina woman Ms Vera Joyce Tee.

Guests travelled from as far as Ballina, Narromine, Orange and Canowindra to attend the celebration.

Ms Tee's daughter in law, Ms Susan Tee, said it was a wonderful afternoon.

"Tributes were paid by her sons Don and Frank and Uniting Church minister Mr Neville Gray.

"In response, Joyce (as she prefers to be known) made an excellent speech from memory as she forgot to take her notes," Susan said.

Ms Tee was born in Canowindra NSW in 1919.

One of nine children, she was the youngest daughter but the middle child.

Her baby brother Len is now 93 and lives in Orange.

"Joyce and her husband Reg moved to Umina Beach in 1964 to provide two of their four children with a career.

"Their son Colin passed away in 1980 and she lost her husband Reg in 1993.

"She has three children, daughter Zoane and sons Frank and Don, with six grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren," Susan said.

"Joyce is a stalwart of the Ettalong Uniting Church and still attends regularly on a Sunday morning, thanks to her friend Robin Dyer who picks her up."

"Joyce still lives in her own home and is bright as a button.

"She still cooks, goes shopping every second Monday and loves having friends and family come visit," Susan said.

She said Ms Tee was appreciative of those who had helped to get her to this milestone, including her doctor, her family and Legacy and Kincare staff.
