Redditch-born Dorothy celebrates her 101st birthday
11:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
A RESIDENT at a Bromsgrove care home celebrated her 101st birthday on Sunday, August 11.
Dorothy Cull, who lives at St John’s Court Care Home, was born in Redditch and was one of five siblings.
She married Lesley John in 1934, and the couple had three sons.
She was a hairdresser up until her retirement in 1979 and has always had a passion for making her own clothes.
She loves to sing hymns, listen to music and watch TV and thoroughly enjoys talking about her travels which have taken her all over Europe.
She celebrated her birthday with her two sons, Jim and John, her two grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
When asked by her friends and staff from St John’s Court what her birthday wish would be, she said she would dearly love to go to the theatre, so everyone rallied round and bought her tickets to go and see George’s Marvelous Medicine at the Artrix in Bromsgrove.
A care home spokesman said: “Dorothy is a wonderful lady and always makes us laugh. She keeps us all going.”
