THE birth three weeks ago of tiny Memphis Carlisle provided a huge 97-year age difference between five generations of one Mandurah family.

Kate Langley (98) has lived at Greenfields Aged Care for the past six months and celebrated yesterday with daughter Colleen Williams (72), son Dwayne Williams (44), Tischa Carlisle (23), three-week-old Memphis and other family members.

Mrs Langley was born in Wagin and barracks, unfortunately according to her daughter Colleen, for Geelong.

Colleen has lived in Mandurah more than 40 years, and in the 1980s owned the Top Spot deli opposite the post office on Pinjarra Road and organised catering for Mandurah Golf Club and Pinjarra Race Club.
