Doreen Burgin celebrates a century of life

Estia Health Tuncurry resident Doreen Burgin celebrated her 100th birthday in style on Tuesday, March 19, enjoying a very special High Tea with close family and friends.

Estia Health Tuncurry Executive Director Darran Paul said all employees at the home were delighted to participate in such a momentous occasion.

‘Doreen is an inspiration and we are so privileged to be able to help her celebrate her 100th birthday,’ he said. ‘She’s such an  active person with a healthy lifestyle and gets involved with all our social activities including the live entertainment, bingo, outings, and picnics.’

Doreen has called Estia Health Tuncurry home since July 2018 and says she could not be happier. Born in Wales, Doreen immigrated to Australia at the age of six and later married her husband Eric before settling in Spears Point, NSW to raise their twins Gary and Marilyn. 

With her husband serving in the Australian Air Force, Doreen travelled the world extensively with her children.
