Resident celebrates reaching 102

Friends and family gathered at The Royal Star & Garter Homes in Surbiton to celebrate the 102nd birthday of Marjorie ‘Johnnie’ Steiner.

The birthday bash on Thursday 11 October featured a delicious birthday cake, champagne, singers and a pianist who led a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday'. Residents and staff were also present to wish Johnnie, who has lived at the Surbiton home for nearly four years, many happy returns.

Afterwards, Johnnie’s daughter Vicky Peirson praised her mother and The Royal Star & Garter Homes. She said: “My mother is an inspiration to all of us and I just feel so thankful and pleased that she’s here at The Royal Star & Garter Homes, where everyone shows her so much love and kindness, and it’s such a happy home. Thank you, The Royal Star & Garter Homes!”

Johnnie, a great-grandmother, was born in Norwich on 11 October 1916. She married Peter, who served in the RAF, after the Second World War, and they settled in Enfield, North London, where she worked as a hairdresser.
