Remarkable Edith turns 106
3:03pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
THERE are not many people left alive who have lived through both World Wars.
But among that number is Edith Dean, who has celebrated a remarkable milestone - her 106th birthday.
Edith lives at the Kingsleigh Residential Home in Berrow Road, Burnham, and family and friends came from far and wide for a party to celebrate her special day.
The Weekly News has reported on several of Edith's birthday celebrations since she turned 100.
Last year, Edith received a second telegram from the Queen, to mark her 105th birthday.
It wasn't until she was 99 that Edith gave up her part time job at the RSPCA charity shop in Regent Street, Burnham.
Staff at Kingsleigh Residential Home say Edith remains active and is one of the more “vocal” residents at the home.
