Rand Aid Tarentaal retirement village resident Molly Cross celebrated her 90th birthday on 10 February, at a lovely party organised by her caring neighbours.

Born in England 1932, Molly moved to Johannesburg at the age of seven.

She met her late husband Ken, in Rhodesia, and they got married on 12 September 1969. They then lived in Salisbury for approximately 12 years, and moved to South Africa in 1980.

Ken started working at Rand Aid Association in 1981, in the accounts department, and the couple moved to Tarentaal when Ken retired in June 1996.

Sadly, Ken passed away in 2014, on his 84th birthday. The couple was married for 45 years.

Molly, a Tarentaal resident for almost 26 years, says she enjoyed gardening in her younger years. “I now love watching sport on TV, especially cricket, golf and tennis,” she says.
