Joyce Brown 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!

Pelton Grange presents Joyce Brown

Joyce was on 16th February 1926. After leaving school, she started her working career at CNS Tinplates in Birtley. She eventually left there and started working at Roseberry School as a Dinner Lady, whilst working a night job at the Empire Picture House at Chester le Street.

Joyce has two children, Eileen and Gavin and remembers Eileen receiving a cup, saucer and plate set to mark the Queen’s coronation.

Now a resident at Pelton Grange Joyce enjoys spending her days relaxing and listening to music in the home.
