A HELENSBURGH woman has celebrated her 100th birthday in lockdown.

Janet Humphrey, who lives in Suffolk Street, reached the milestone on June 17 and received bundles of gifts, including the customary card from Her Majesty the Queen, and plenty of well wishes from family, friends and neighbours.

Mrs Humphrey has lived in the town for more than 40 years, having previously worked as a headteacher in St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean.

Originally from Lossiemouth, she has also spent time living in Germany, Sri Lanka, France and Kenya among other places during a well travelled life.

Neighbour Frankie Hanmer, who took the picture (above) of Mrs Humphrey on her big day with daughter Helen and two of her grandsons, told the Advertiser: “Mrs Humphrey has lived and worked in many overseas countries and remembers all with affection.

“Despite having a lockdown 100th birthday, she had a happy day of celebration.”

One of Mrs Humphrey’s sons, Roland, sadly passed away from an illness a few years ago, but she has two other children, Richard and Helen, along with five grandsons and six great-grandchildren, two of whom were born in the spring.
