A LADY living on Anglesey celebrated a landmark occasion this week - her 100th birthday.

On Monday, the family of Dorothy Roberts visited Fairways Newydd care home in Llanfairpwll to help mark her special milestone.

Dorothy was joined by her sons Ken and Trebor (and his wife Jean), as well as her grandchildren, Philip, Corrina, Clive, Lindsey, Joe and Yan, who had all travelled from various parts of the UK to be by her side.

Also present were her some of her Dorothy's great grandchildren and her great, great grandchildren.

Born on January 8, 1918 in Barmouth to Mr and Mrs William Jones, Dorothy moved to Bangor many years ago. She had lived at addresses in both Glanadda and Bryn Llwyd.

She has four sons, Ken, Trebor and two who have passed away, Glyn and Billy, who are buried over in Australia, where their families still reside today.

Following the death of her husband, William, Dorothy then moved to Dinas Road, Llandudno, where she had lived for 21 years.

Unfortunately, due to her deteriorating health and dementia, Dorothy moved to the care home in Llanfairpwll in the 90's, where she has remained since.

Nevertheless, she has blended in very well with her fellow residents and staff during her time there and thoroughly enjoyed their company during her 100th birthday celebrations this week.

Speaking on behalf of his mother, Trebor, said: "My mum's special birthday party went extremely well and she was very happy to see that so many of her family members had turned up to join in with the celebrations.

"The catering side of the party was fantastic - including the cake and all the sandwiches.

"We, as a family, would like to thank all of those, especially Pam, who helped make my mother's day such a special one."
