Comments (0)

MRS Eileen 'Maisie' Wills, who for many years worked at the National Trust's Wightwick Manor in Wolverhampton, celebrated her 106th birthday last week.

Eileen became an Abbeyfield Parkdale resident in May 2013, when at the age of 104 she felt that she could no longer live alone.

She continues to live a full life, after growing up in a farmhouse and working as a Dental Nurse, to actively fundraising and supporting the Conservative Party.

From her many visits to the House of Commons, Eileen is very proud of her large photo collection, which includes pictures of herself with many Prime Ministers from over the years.

"My key to longevity is to have three good meals a day and a drink occasionally," commented Eileen on her birthday.

House manager Paul Morgan said: "Eileen is a very pleasant and warm-hearted lady and we really enjoyed spending this very special day with her."

The celebrations on Friday, August 1 started with a birthday party at the Abbeyfield care home, complete with a special cake, lots of food and drink.

Is Maisie the oldest person in the Black Country?
