Mosgiel resident Molly Brown celebrated her 102nd birthday last week.

The Brooklands Village rest-home resident was born in Gisborne on the February 8, 1916.

She and her husband, John Brown, raised a family in Roxburgh, where they spent most of their lives.

She kept active, playing tennis, golf, being a member of walking groups and keeping a beautiful garden.

After her husband died, she moved to Mosgiel to be near her family and loves spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She remains active in a variety of activities at the home, where she has lived since 2015.

Her philosophy on life is simple - to always exercise, and have something in life to look forward to.

The celebrations for her 102nd birthday last Wednesday began with a ''musical happy hour'' including family and rest-home residents, followed by a lunch with family members at their home.
