HUDDERSFIELD woman Ruby Walters has celebrated her 100th birthday.
Mrs Walters marked her centenary with a party at Aden View residential home in Primrose Hill.
Mrs Walters was born in Holme in 1906.
She was so keen to attend the local school that, when she was three, she ran away from home and camped out there.
She moved to Holmbridge with her family and lived there for several years, working as a weaver at mills in the area.
In 1943, she married her late husband Charles at St David's Church in Holmbridge.
They had a daughter, Sheila Hyde, who lives at Crosland Moor with husband Terry and 26-year-old daughter Michelle.
Mrs Walters moved from the Holme Valley to Crosland Moor in 1958 and stayed there until she moved to Aden View in 2002.
Mrs Walters has a variety of interests, including listening to the radio, completing magazine puzzles and gardening.
She had been known for her sharp long-distance vision - she was able to tell the time on Paddock Church clock from her garden in Crosland Moor.
