Forster resident, grandmother to seven and great grandmother to 15 are just a few of the feathers in Lorna Scott’s hat.
The beloved friend and family member recently celebrated a fabulous 90 years with a busy weekend of events, reflecting on a long and wonderful life so far.
Hitting the milestone birthday on February 12, Lorna spent the weekend celebrating with family and enjoying good food and drink around the Great Lakes.
The festivities kicked off with a luncheon at her home on Friday, with three of her nieces from the Central Coast making the trip up.
A second gathering at Forster Tuncurry Golf Club on Saturday saw 20 special guests share the special moment.
Finally, family and friends threw a celebration lunch at Hamilton's on Monday to close the big weekend.
Born in Liverpool, Lorna attended Liverpool Central School and Parramatta Domestic Science Girls School in her youth.
She worked as a secretary/typist most of her working life, retiring in 1988 from Cable Makers Liverpool office.
Marrying the love of her life, Roy in 1945, Lorna had two sons and enjoyed a family home in Liverpool until 2005.
There were two momentous occasions that year, she and Roy celebrated 60 years of married life, and they left Liverpool and made the sea change move to Forster.
Sadly, Roy died in 2011, but Lorna has continued to lead a busy life, residing in her own home and taking care of herself, and anyone else she can help.
She was pleased to receive congratulatory messages from the prime minister and state premier, the governor, state and federal members, Mr Bromhead and Dr. Gillespie to commemorate the milestone.
Much loved by her large family, Lorna is looking forward to many more years of adventures to come.
