A WEE COUNTY woman celebrated her 100th birthday at a Clackmannanshire care home this month.

Edna Doris Mundy Denny became a centenarian on October 1, and was treated to a party organised by staff at Sauchie's Beechwood Park Care Home to mark the occasion.

Though the Coronavirus pandemic has made celebrating such events far harder, staff and family members worked hard to ensure Edna enjoyed her big day.

One staff member at Beechwood Park told the Advertiser: "Edna's birthday went really really well.

"She got gifts from her family, and cake.

"Of course, her family couldn't come because of Covid-19 protocols, but we did celebrate her birthday with staff and other residents."

When asked what Edna was like as a resident, the staff member said: "She's a charming lady."

Photos from the day show cards, balloons, sweet treats and smiles were aplenty as everyone came together for Edna's birthday.

Born in 1920, Edna moved from London to Scotland back in the 1940.

She ended up working in the Wee County village of Menstrie, and it was there she met her future husband Archie Denny.

The pair crossed paths while Edna was lodging with Archie's sister, Annie, in Abercrombie Place in Menstrie.

They were clearly meant to be for each other, as they were married on December 31, 1941.

They ultimately settled down together in Menstrie – and there they had three children.

Edna now has seven grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren.
