Joice Tee celebrates 102nd birthday at her home
Ms Vera Joice Tee (nee Nash) celebrated her 102nd birthday on December 7 at her home in Umina Beach with a small gathering of family and friends.
"Joice, as she prefers to be called, was born in Canowindra NSW in 1919, one of nine children," said her daughter-in-law Ms Sue Tee.
"She was the youngest daughter but the middle child.
"Joice 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 15 great grandchildren.
"Joice is a stalwart of the Ettalong Uniting Church - and still attended regularly on a Sunday morning until Covid prevented the Church services.
"Joice still lives in her own home and is bright as a button.
"She does word puzzles and enjoys colouring in but absolutely loves having friends and family come visit.
"Celebrations lasted from the Saturday to her birthday on Tuesday.
"She thanked all those around her who have helped to get her to this amazing milestone - Dr Michael Crookes her local GP, her good friend Robin, the girls who come daily to look after her, her family and her faith in God."
