A WOMAN who celebrated her 100th birthday at the weekend said the secret to her long life has been a “happy disposition and a glass of sherry”.
Kathleen Willis was born in Colchester, but moved to Letchworth GC where she lived with her husband Charles and two daughters.
She was an active member of the Letchworth Townswomen’s Guild and regularly attended the matins service in Willian.
Before getting married Mrs Willis worked as a printing assistant.
The centenarian marked her big day on Saturday with a party at Richard Cox House, in Dog Kennel Lane, Royston, where she has lived since 2005.
Friends and family gathered to see her open a telegram from the Queen.
