Carrington's Enid Greenfield reaches her century

There were 100 reasons to celebrate at Carrington on Tuesday.

Enid Greenfield, a resident at the Grasmere aged care facility, reached her 100th birthday on May 11.

It was a big cause for celebration, with staff and Mrs Greenfield's family all marking the occasion with a party, cake and balloons.

The new centenarian said it felt pretty good to notch up 100 years.

"[It feels] not too bad," she said.

"I still know who I am and still have most of my marbles!"

Mrs Greenfield was born in Guildford in 1921, where she attended Guildford Catholic School.

She married Edwin Charles Greenfield (now deceased) on May 25, and the pair had children Brian, Colin, Allan, Darryl, Garry and Wayne (now deceased), and adopted daughter Tracy.

Mrs Greenfield now has 28 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

She was a member of the Australian Women's Land Army and Legacy, and worked on a farm.

Mrs Greenfield also worked as a weaver in Guildford and volunteered with the Red Cross in palliative care.

She made clay sculptures and pottery throughout her life, and enjoys patchwork and sewing at Carrington.

The proud family matriarch said "clean living" was her secret to a long long.

"I didn't drink or smoke," she said.

Mrs Greenfield said her children was the thing she was most proud of in life.

Her birthday was also celebrated with a family lunch at Camden Valley Inn, including visits from three family members who had flown in from out of state.
