"My sister used to say she knew a secret she'd tell me one day"

When centenarian Phoebe was 99 a family secret was revealed

Now 103 years, Phoebe has lived a life full of resilience, love, and unexpected surprises. Arriving in Australia from England as a young child, tragedy struck when she lost her mother just two years later. Despite the hardships that followed, Phoebe’s vibrant spirit and sense of humour remained intact throughout her time in an orphanage.

Her family has been a constant source of joy throughout her long life. From her own children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and even a great-great-grandchild, Phoebe has found immeasurable happiness.

At the age of 99, the universe had one last surprise in store for her when she discovered the existence of another brother. Embracing this newfound family connection, Phoebe’s story serves as an inspiration to all, reminding us that laughter, resilience, and the warmth of family should be cherished every step of the way.
