Wagga’s Mary McInnes has cracked a historic milestone, celebrating her 100th birthday on Friday, March 9.
She celebrated alongside fellow RSL Remembrance Village resident Isobel Jones, who celebrated triple figures last year.
Both were surrounded by friends and family at the Village before being treated to a special musical performance and cake.
“Mary is an incredible lady,” said family member Les Homer, who helped Mary to blow out her candles.
“It’s such an achievement to have lived such a life.”
RSL Remembrance Village recreational activity officer Ros Brown was thrilled to have them around.
“I’m just blown away by their longevity,” she said.
“I’m not sure I’d be able to last like these ladies.”
Volunteer Flo Gibbons said the duo were inspirational.
“We’ve only ever had two people live this long in the village.”
