Faith and clean living have contributed to Connie’s long life

Connie Collins has celebrated turning 101 years old with a family party at St Clements Nursing Home in Norwich.   Last year, on her 100th birthday, Mrs Collins received a letter from the Queen congratulating her. This year her son, Antony, and daughter, Ann, along with friends at the nursing home gave her the same royal treatment with birthday wishes and lunch.   Born a year after the First World War started, Connie married Leslie Collins in 1941. Mrs Collins started her first job as a bookkeeper in Hethersett.   Her true passion through the years was volunteering at her local church. When they were growing up, her children even remember her going to visit the residents at nursing homes.   Antony Collins credits his mother’s long life to “being good”. “I think her faith has kept her strong, she’s never drank or smoked and has always been a very clean-living person,” he said.
