Louisa, 100, is a real party player
It was early to bed for Louisa Palmer last night after celebrating her 100th birthday with not one, but two parties. Tired, but extremely happy, Ms Palmer was guest of honour at her first party yesterday morning where she was joined by friends, family and residents and staff from her home at Coffs Haven. Following a short rest, party number two started in the early afternoon. This was a private function for close family and friends, with daughters, Joy and Marie, close at her side. Not letting distance keep her from helping mum blow out the candles, Marie made the flight from New Zealand to be at the party. Originally from the South Coast, Ms Palmer has been a resident at Coffs Haven for the past three years.
