Happy 100th B’day, Thelma

THELMA Marshall (nee Rose) celebrated her 100th birthday on November 12.

Thelma was born to Arthur and Nora Rose in 1914 at Warwick Hospital.

She grew up in Warwick with her brothers and sisters - Bernard, Dorothy, Alma and Phyllis.

During her life she became an accomplished seamstress, a trade which she put to good use by sewing clothes for family and friends alike.

On May 23, 1941 she married John Marshall and together they built a house in Cecil Street and raised a family of five.

In later years she and John owned and operated the Neptune (later Shell) service station in Wood Street - the site of the current medical centre.

On Saturday, November 15, Thelma's immediate and extended family, relatives and friends travelled from many all parts of Australia to join her in celebrating 100 fabulous years.

The function held in the Douglas Feez Pavilion at the Warwick Showgrounds.

A good celebration was had by all.

Congratulations Thelma.
