A CENTENARIAN described as “a wonderful old lady” celebrated her birthday with family and friends on Saturday.
Ethel Muller known as Tommy from Elmside Care Home in Hitchin reached the grand old age of 100 on March 27. Originally from Swansea, Wales, she lived all over the place before settling in Hitchin over 30 years ago.
She worked as a nurse before marrying her husband Bernard who sadly passed away 20 years ago.
Her daughter Lynne Fairchild, 68, said: “I find it quite surreal really. It is hard to get your head round the vast changes she has experienced in her life. When she was born in 1913 it was just before the first world war and there were very few cars.
“There has been such huge technological changes it must seem to her like another planet.”
