Yarrawonga’s oldest, Jean, turns 106

Not many Australians can say they have received special birthday wishes from the Queen and King in the past six years. But Yarrawonga’s oldest resident Jean Mathieson, who turned 106-years-of-age on Monday, can say that! The Woods Point resident is pictured here with family members Debra Tierney-Mathieson, wife of grandson David, Saskia Vogels partner of son Lynn Mathieson, Corrie Mathieson daughter of Lynn and granddaughter to Jean, son Lynn Mathieson, son Scott Mathieson, Bernadette Thomas partner of Scott, great granddaughter and daughter of Corrie Harriet Alexander, and Ginny Alexander, great granddaughter and daughter of Corrie.
