Jean’s 80th


My darling family gave me an 80th birthday party on Saturday, May 8, 2001, at the Bowling Club, Tully.  (I was 80 on Friday, May 7).

All my children, grandchildren, and their families, relatives, and friends came.  From Tasmania in the south to Cairns in the north, they joined my friends from Tully, Innisfail, Kurrimine Beach, Mission Beach, Cairns, Townsville, Ayr, Dalby, and Brisbane.  

Even though I had told them that I did not want a party, I thoroughly enjoyed having everyone there and appreciated the effort that they all made to join me and celebrate my 80th.

They took many photographs, and I will try and send you some and the speech from Dorothea, my eldest child, that I thought was far too long but covered more than I knew about my life!

I especially thank everyone who came and wished me a Happy Birthday.
