A lifelong St Monans resident has celebrated her 100th birthday.

Jemima ‘Mima’ Davie marked a century on Wednesday, April 2 with a party at Peace Haven Care Home in Lundin Links.

Mima only moved to the home in November, having lived independently up until the ripe old age of 99.

Born in St Monans in 1914, Mima attended St Monans Primary school and worked as a maid before joining the WRCA during World War Two.

Mima married George on May 25, 1945 after meeting him at a family wedding. The pair went on to have four children - James, John, Janette and Catherine.

The family continued to live in St Monans, with George working as an engineer, and later looking after the local caravan park while Mima had various cleaning jobs in the local area.

Daughter Catherine and her husband James, alongwith daughter-in-law Liz Davie, grandson Michael Cunningham and his wife Lesley and their daughters - great grandaughters of Mima - Skye and Emily were all there to celebrate the special occasion.

Catherine said: “The party was really good and she really enjoyed it - she was on top form.”
