Family affair for Margery’s 100th
7:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
AN Upton woman marked her 100th birthday with family and friends at the Corse Lawn Hotel.
Margery Pettigrew lives in accommodation at the town’s Thomas Morris House.
Her daughter Katherine Harding said: “She has two children, me and my brother Timothy, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, and we all managed to be at her birthday party.
“We came from all over the place, including London, South Wales and Lancashire, and we enjoyed a really special day, My mother absolutely loved it.”
Mrs Pettigrew was born Margery Dawe in the village of St Fagans, near Cardiff. In 1940, she married Andrew Pettigrew, who came from the same village.
Before her marriage, she worked for the South West Electricity Board in St Mellons, near Cardiff, but afterwards she devoted herself to her family. They moved to Worcester in 1950 when her husband was appointed head of the city’s parks department.
“She was very involved in the Worcester Townswomens’ Guild and was involved in a lot of their drama activities,” said Mrs Harding.
The couple later moved to Guarlford, near Malvern, where Mrs Pettigrew was well known, hosting coffee mornings for various causes.
