Elizabeth turned 100 on Monday 27th October and she marked the occasion with an old fashioned afternoon tea party, organised by her daughter-in-law Linda.
Elizabeth was born and lived in Shuttlewood, Derbyshire and had seven older brothers.
Elizabeth learnt to play the piano as a child and continued to play throughout her life until sadly her eyesight deteriorated.
And she said some of her fondest memories were those spent with two of her brothers, who were excellent singers and comedians, and accompaying them on the piano at many concerts in the area.
Elizabeth married her husband Jack when she was 21-years-old and they lived in Creswell until Jack passed away in 1982.
They had one son, John, who sadly passed away nine years ago, and Elizabeth has two grandsons and three great granddaughters.
Elizabeth has lived at Southmoor Lodge for six years and participates in their activities every afternoon, including armchair games, sing a longs, quizzes and reminiscence chats, of which Elizabeth contributes much from her long and memorable life.
