Four Sundale residents gathered recently to share more than 400 years of combined wisdom at a special morning tea at Sundale in Nambour in recognition of their birthdays. Coolum Waters resident Marie Rose Clarke (pictured third, L-R) who is 104 said that the secret to her long life was hard work! “I started work at the age of 14 scrubbing floors on my hands and knees and doing ironing with a flat iron that was heated on the stove.” The other ladies Peg Morse, Lois Mayers and Phyllis Butt who are all 103 stated that being thankful, eating well and not being a gossip were great attributes for a long and healthy life. Sundale is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting the needs of the community via Retirement Communities, Care Centres, and In-Home Care support services since 1963.
