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!
Millbrow presents Francis Gee
Francis turned 90 on the 19th April making her just 3 days older than Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She fondly remembers attending a street party on Latham Street in Widnes to celebrate the Queen’s coronation. Francis was evacuated from Liverpool to Blackpool during the war, but returned to Widnes aged 14 to work in a bakery.
At 18, she went to work in a bomb making factory in Risley, Warrington. She met her husband Dave and got married in 1951 at St Pauls Church in Widnes.
In her younger years Francis enjoyed walking and cycling.
Now a resident at Millbrow Francis enjoys spending her days with her fellow residents. She’s a very sociable person who likes a good natter.
