A party at the Quinns Rocks Adult Day Centre was just one of the celebrations for Connie Brewer’s 100th birthday.

Her son Ross Brewer said she was born on November 9, 1913 in Bunbury.

‘She has been living with me for eight years in Two Rocks,’ Mr Brewer said.

‘In the last few years, she attends senior citz every Monday and she is an ace in bingo, she cleans them out regularly.’

Mrs Brewer has two sons and a daughter, who’ve given her 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

Mr Brewer said his mother and father George were married for about 74 years before he died in 1999, and they used to enjoy fishing in Dunsborough.

‘She talks regularly about when she was a child, polishing the reins and saddles,’ he said.

‘She would fix the sulky up to the horse and take the mail out to all the farms (in Boyup Brook).’

Mr Brewer said the family celebrated on her birthday at the Atrium in Burswood, then the senior citizens group had a party on November 11 and the Quinns Rocks Adult Day Care group held another celebration on November 12.

Mrs Brewer received a gold senior citizens card for her 100th birthday, which gave her free public transport when she travelled by train to Mandurah on November 13.
