Dorothy Sanders celebrates 105th birthday with family

Archant

A woman who has celebrated her 105th birthday in Exmouth says the key to her longevity is enjoying life.

Dorothy Sanders (nee Turl) marked the occasion with her daughter Frances Lodwig, grandson Gareth, and three of her six great grandchildren, Tyler, Maddison and Mason.

They enjoyed a celebratory tea party at Exmouth Hospital, where Dorothy has been recovering from a hip operation, with lots of family members sharing her special day, and seeing the telegram and card from the Queen.

Dorothy, who was born and bred in Topsham, says her longevity is due to a happy 50 years of marriage, hard work, lots of singing and dancing, and generally enjoying life.
