Doreen Watkins celebrates her 90th year by sharing her story

The theme for Care Home Open Day this year focuses on celebration and the Queen’s 90th birthday. Here at Four Seasons Health Care we thought it would be nice to share some of our resident’s stories who are also celebrating their 90th year!

The Rookery presents Doreen Watkins

Doreen celebrated turning 90 on the 19th April – making her 3 days older than Queen Elizabeth II.

Doreen remembers the war breaking out in 1939, when she was just 13 years old. She spent most of her like working as an office clerk, but let her hair down when she could. Doreen got engaged to Emelyn in 1947 – the same year as the Queen and the then Lieutenant Phillip Mountbatten.

Doreen wouldn’t like to change places with the Queen as she’s enjoyed her life; however, she is a Royalist and is very proud of the royal family.

Now a resident at The Rookery Doreen likes music, completing crosswords and playing scrabble and dominos.
