What do you buy someone
who is turning 100?

Grandma Edna

Edna Phillips was born on 9 November 1916 and lived in Melbourne, Australia. When she lived in her own house she ran an electrical goods shop with her husband Cliff and made delicious pavlovas and homemade lemonade. After retirement she enjoyed knitting teddies for children and reading books about families.

A special message from Grandma Edna

“I wonder about the birthday cake at the 100-year-old party. Will we put 100 candles on it?”
