Dorothy’s still enjoying life as she reaches 105
10:24am Tuesday 22nd April 2014 in New Forest
SHE can still recount poetry from her youth word-for-word.
And Dorothy Larner’s incredible memory was put to the test when she recounted a few verses as she celebrated a milestone birthday at Barton on Sea’s Gatehouse Care Home.
Family members including daughters Maureen, 81, and Valerie, 79, had gathered to celebrate her 105th birthday.
Dorothy, who lived in Hordle in the New Forest before moving to the home, said: “I’ve just lived a normal life, I eat what I like, I try not to worry and I enjoy life.”
This is the second time Dorothy has received a birthday goodwill message from the Queen – having had one five years ago when she reached milestone 100.
