Stella Wilkie was born on December 6, 1915 making her the grand age of 100, and only half way to 101.
Having never met someone of Stella’s age, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I went for a visit at her nursing home in Murwillumbah. When I arrived the nurse and I went looking for Stella in her room, but it was empty. She wasn’t sitting inside watching television with the other residents, instead we found her outside enjoying the sun by herself. I asked her about the letter of congratulations she’d received from the Queen for her 100th birthday.
