Many congratulations to Mrs Maisie Jameson from the Church of the Epiphany, Parish of Finaghy and Upper Malone, who celebrated her 100th birthday on September 13.
The Rev Louise Stewart, rector, was among those to pay a socially-distanced visit to Maisie, who lives independently at home in Finaghy, on the big day.
Maisie, along with her late husband Dick, has been a faithful member of the Church of the Epiphany for many years. Dick was a sexton and did a lot of work around the parish, and Maisie remains a loyal and involved member of the parish Mothers’ Union. The couple have one daughter, Ann.
It has been an eventful year for Maisie. She moved into a nursing home for respite care following a fall early this year and, because of lockdown, she remained there for more weeks than had been originally intended. During this time, Maisie contracted Covid-19, but was asymptomatic and has made a full recovery. She returned to her own home in April.
Louise said: “I really had to go and visit Maisie as we have been counting down the years to this big birthday. I hadn’t seen her since March and she was looking great. She said it had been the best birthday she has ever had!”
