Let’s hope Her Maj hasn’t forgotten to send a celebratory telegram to Eileen Walker, oldest living and long time member of MLTC who turned 100 last week.
Born in Grenfell, NSW in 1920, Eileen became a Northern Beaches local and lived in Dee Why (Ian Ave.) for a long time, surviving the loss of her husband in 2000 and her only child, a daughter, in 2006.
She played tennis in the area and was a member of MLTC for many years.
It was only four years ago that her niece moved her to a War Veterans nursing home close by her in Camden Way, where she remains comfortable and healthy, but just a little vague. So much to remember!
Happy 100th birthday to MLTC’s Golden Girl, Eileen Walker.
