100 up for Whitchurch's Ethel as she celebrates milestone


Lucy Wain

ETHEL AMOS, who now lives in Weston House Residential Home in Whitchurch, has celebrated her 100th birthday.

 Mrs Amos, nee Webster, has lived in Whitchurch all her life. 

The youngest daughter of Samuel and Mary, Ethel has survived two brothers and five sisters.

Ethel was married to Jack Amos for 72 years and lived in the same house on Mill Street, for more than 76 years. Their only son, Peter, sadly died seven years ago.

A regular in the congregation at St Alkmunds Church in earlier years, Mrs Amos served with the Red Cross during the war and became a well-known figure through numerous community activities, including her time as a dental nurse at Mr Moore’s practice.

A family party to celebrate the occasion was held on  her birthday, Sunday, June 4,  with her daughter-in-law Pat, grandchildren Jane, Diana and Simon, together with seven great-grandchildren, their partners and family friends.

The family would like to thank all the caring staff at Weston House for their kindness in looking after Mrs Amos and also hosting a party in her honour.
