Eva Harper 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 Cedars & Larches presents Eva Harper

Eva turned 90 in March. She was born and bred in Ilkeston and actually lives with some of her old school classmates in The Cedars & Larches Care Home.

In World War II, Eva went to work in a bomb factory and likens this to Her Royal Highness who also worked as a mechanic during the war. Eva married a sailor – Colin – like Queen Elizabeth II.

On the day of the coronation, Eva remembers getting her three children christened before having a joint celebration. Eva is very patriotic and believes the Queen does a fantastic job.

Now a resident at The Cedars & Larches, Eva enjoys spending her days relaxing and joining in with the activities held in the home.
