Beatrice Staddon celebrates turning 100!June 11, 2014
Beatrice Staddon, resident at Dove Tree House in Exeter recently celebrated her 100th birthday. She received congratulations in a card from the Queen and enjoyed a party thrown by family and friends at Dove Tree House. Beatrice, a former nurse at the city's old Eye Infirmary, grew up on a farm in North Tawton. She married her husband Victor Thomas in 1938 and the couple had three children, Kenneth, Anne and John. They set up home in Baker Street, Heavitree, where they remained throughout their lives. Beatrice moved into Dove Tree House in January 2012, and her son John feels that since she has been with us she has come on in leaps and bounds due to the high standard of care she receives. Congratulations Beatrice!
