Retired chef celebrates 100th birthday
Published 27/06/11



A WOMAN who is always “on the go” celebrated her 100th birthday on Friday.

June Kathleen “Kit” Lunnon, of Highmoor Cross, was surrounded by about 60 friends and relatives at a party at her home of 72 years.

The guests sheltered from the rain in gazebos and marquees as they enjoyed a barbecue and cake made by Sophie Guile, one of Mrs Lunnon’s 10 grandchildren.

Mrs Lunnon, who used to be a chef in service, has lived in the area all her life. Her husband William George, a gardener, died about 20 years ago.

There were five generations of her family at the party, including her three children and some of her 13 great grandchildren and her two great great grandchildren.


Mrs Lunnon, who lives with her son William, said: “The party went on all day. I have such a lot of family and most of them came. I enjoyed it very much. I got lots of chocolates and there were flowers galore.”

She said the secret to a long life was “hard work”, adding: “I have kept myself busy with one thing and another and we have been a very happy family.”

Mrs Lunnon, who was in Kintbury, born near Newbury, gave up work when she got married in 1937 but did all the cooking for the family until recently. She has cooked for royalty and at the Royal Albert Hall.

Grandchild Keith Lunnon, 31, a heating engineer, who also lives in Highmoor Cross, said: “She’s on the go the whole time and it was only a few years ago that she took a back seat in cooking.”
