Celebrations for Anne’s 100th birthday!
The Chair of Flintshire County Council has helped another Flintshire resident celebrate a special birthday.
Councillor Marion Bateman met Mrs Anne Mary Ellis (née Evans) on 21 December when she celebrated her 100th birthday.
Anne was the third child of Ellen and Will Evans and went to St David’s School in Mold. She left at age 14 to be a nanny in Colwyn Bay for her cousin. She met her husband, Charles Howells, and married there. They had a daughter, Ursula and two sons, Charles Lester and Roger, all born in Rhyl.
Her husband passed away in 1946, so Anne moved back to Mold where she worked in various jobs. She met and married Jim Ellis in 1970; he sadly passed away four years ago.
Anne has led a busy, active life and has 10 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 17 great-great grandchildren – with two more on the way!
Anne still loves to go out for fresh air and have lunch. She still has a sharp mind and can tell plenty of stories of her youth. She is a much loved mum, gran and great gran.
