A GOOD sense of humour has helped a Huddersfield woman reach her 100th birthday.
Rachel Law celebrated her centenary with a family party at the Aden View residential home, Primrose Hill, where she has lived for the last five years.
Lancashire-born Mrs Law came to Huddersfield when she was 72 years to be nearer her son Harry, who settled in the town.
The mother-of-two lived at Longfield Avenue, Moldgreen, alone until she was in her 90s.
She spent her younger years working as a silk weaver in Lancashire. She has also worked as a cook for a surgeon at Harley Street, London.
She was married to professional jockey Harry Law, who sadly died when she was just 53.
She also had two children – Iris and Harry, who lived in Moldgreen and has also now passed away.
Her daughter Iris Stocks, of Suffolk, said: “She was thrilled to receive her lovely card from the Queen.
“She still has all her marbles and has been very lucky with her health.
“But I put it down to her good sense of humour.”
