Celebrations for Evelyn’s 100th birthday!
The Chairman of Flintshire County Council, Councillor Paul Cunningham and his Consort, Mrs. Joan Cunningham has helped another Flintshire resident celebrate a special birthday.
A party was held recently to celebrate the 100th birthday of Evelyn Atkinson, nee James. Evelyn was born in Heeley Bank Sheffield on 7 March 1919 to Florence and William James. She went to school in Sheffield and then got a job as a secretary in an office of a company selling tools.
She enjoyed playing the piano to a good standard and always liked rambling with a rambling club and cycling to keep fit.
She married her first husband Rene at aged 20 and had three children, Stephen, Phillip and Sylvia. She has four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. In later life, she met her childhood sweetheart and they married in 1991 in the Plas Hafod Mold, spending many happy years together. She came to live at Marleyfield House in January 2019.
