Family and friends of Kathleen Clayster gathered at Gracehaven Rockingham last week to celebrate her 105th birthday.

Better known by her nickname Paddy, Ms Clayster was born in East Fremantle in 1907 in a house which still stands to this day.

She grew up playing football and cricket with her brothers and attended St Mary’s School in Fremantle before moving to Subiaco.

Ms Clayster married William Fellows in 1928 and the following year had the couple’s only child, June.

She was later remarried to George Clayster.

Five generations of Ms Clayster’s family gathered in the Yacht Club at Gracehaven Rockingham on Thursday to celebrate the milestone.
