Jean celebrates her 100th birthday with loved ones
JEAN Stapleton is not the first person in her family to celebrate a 100th birthday, and although she admitted she has good genes, the Hamilton woman said keeping a healthy body and mind were integral to living a long life.
Jean celebrated her centenary birthday on Saturday with more than 150 friends and family before her birthday on Monday.
She was born in Hamilton on August 27, 1918 and was the seventh of eight children.
Jean’s father worked at Thompson’s on Gray Street, where she spent much of her childhood.
