On Saturday, April 17, Kingston resident Geoff Mundy and his twin sister celebrated a milestone 90th birthday.
Geoff and his sister Audrey Knight (nee Mundy) were born in the Tasman Peninsula and moved to Southport when they were 15.
Geoff’s son Noel Mundy shared some of the highlights of his father and aunt’s 90 years in the southern Tasmanian communities.
“The family bought an orchard and dairy farm,” said Noel.
“Dad farmed that property with his father and brother until they sold it in 1975.
“Dad was involved in a number of community activities through sport, football and cricket, school leadership and local church.
“Dad and Mum (deceased last year) moved to Kingston 25 years ago.
“Dad has an amazing veggie and fruit garden where I’m sure he grows enough to feed half of Kingston,” Noel said.
“Audrey lived in various towns around the Esperance area and her first job was as the leader of the Bethany boys home that had commenced in Dover.
“She now lives in Queensland to be near her immediate family.
“It is a great achievement for twins who grew up in some challenging times to reach 90 and still be in good health.”
The twins celebrated with family by enjoying a meal out in Blackmans Bay on Saturday.
