Bribie Cove, McKenzie Aged Care Group have had one of their residents celebrate her 109th birthday!! Yep, that’s not a typo….109!! Gwen Moore was born on the 28/11/1911 in Wales where she stayed until 1939 moving then to Bristol. Gwen moved to Australia when she was 60 years old. To celebrate her birthday, Gwen was joined by her daughters Joan and Jill and her friends from the home to celebrate the day. Gwen was sung happy birthday by the staff of Bribie Cove and showered with flowers, gifts and love. And it isn’t a party without some party food so The Bribie Cove kitchen arranged some delectable high tea goodies. Gwen shared stories from her younger years living in Wales with friends and reminisced about these days with her daughters. One story, in particular, was when Gwen was working in a television studio and met Tom Jones, she is very proud of that moment!
Gwen is a very independent lady, her mind is as sharp as a tack and she loves putting it to use on trivia quizzes. She also has a fondness for McDonald’s ice-creams, outdoor excursions and traditional hymns which take her back to her childhood. Everyone at Bribie Cove and The Bribie Islander Magazine would love to wish Gwen a very happy birthday and look forward to celebrating her 110th!! P.S Could Gwen possibly be the oldest person on Bribie Island??
