Life Olympians

Our first Life Olympian award goes to Aussie Eva McConnell just celebrated her 110th birthday !!  Way to go girl !!

Mollymook’s Eva McConnell celebrated an extraordinary milestone of reaching the age of 110.

Eva is an IRT In-Home Care client who lives with her very supportive daughter and son-in-law. She is the matriarch of a large clan including six children, 13 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren and 34 great-great-grandchildren. Eva is believed to be the oldest person in Australia still living at home.

Eva was still chopping wood when she was 100, and at 102 still lived on her own and cooked for herself. She moved to Mollymook to live with her daughter six years ago.

Eva received birthday wishes from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Governor General of Australia Quentin Bryce, Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the Governor of NSW Marie Bashir and NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell.
