Her daughter, Patricia Crossland, said Edna had lived a very active life.

Her first job was hand-dipping chocolates and while in her 80s she helped out in Patricia’s business by picking mushrooms.

Mrs Crossland said her mum enjoys an occasional sherry with her and likes a whisky as a Sunday treat with her grandson, Richard.

As well as her daughter, Edna has family including two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

One of Edna’s birthday treats was a telegram from the Queen, which she is pictured holding (left).
