A century for Lily



Lily May Archer, resident of Franklin turns 100 tomorrow. She was born in the Palmerston North area but moved to Naike at the age of ten in 1925, where she met and married Frederick Archer; they lived there until 1963. They retired from the farm and bought a small block in Bombay. When Fred’s health deteriorated they moved into Pukekohe.
For the last seven or eight years, Lily has been in the Palms Village.
A family lunch was held for her on Saturday with visits from extended family and friends who travelled from as far away as Dunedin, Ashburton, Wellington and Wanganui to spend time with her. Lily’s grandson, Tim, sang (with the help of family) and there was a short power point presention of Lily’s life and of course a lovely cake which was made and decorated by one of her grand daughters. It was a wonderful family celebration and Lily enjoyed every minute.
