105th birthday celebration for Marjorie

The Mayor of Thame, Ann Midwinter has congratulated Marjorie Hulett, who celebrated her 105th birthday on Friday 28th June.

Marjorie was born in East Ham, London, and lived in Tunbridge Wells and New Milton before moving to Thame in 1995 when her son, John, was appointed headteacher at Barley Hill School. Marjorie sadly lost her mother at the age of 8 and her first husband during World War 2. She remarried to Hubert and enjoyed 31 years of very happy marriage. Marjorie enjoyed gardening and art – with her pictures displayed at local exhibitions and in the Mall Galleries in London – and up until just 5 years ago she volunteered in the Thame Oxfam shop.

She now enjoys taking things a little more quietly, sitting in her garden amongst all the flowers she has planted over the years and spending time with her son and daughter-in-law, grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren – all of whom were with her for her 105th birthday celebration. It is believed that Marjorie is the oldest person living in Thame.

When the Mayor asked her what was her secret to a long life, she seemed uncertain but her son John was more sure. “Despite all that life has thrown at her, Mum has always had a positive and optimistic attitude to life.”
