Nancie was born in Sunderland, but lived all her married life in Lincoln, where her husband was Chief Fire Officer for the city brigade.

A keen golfer, Nancie was lady captain of the Carholme Golf Club in the 1980s.

Following a fall, Nancie moved from her own home to Waterloo House three years ago.

Nancie’s two children - Linda and Philip - were among the close family who helped her celebrate the landmark birthday.

“We can’t speak highly enough of Waterloo House; both my brother and I are extremely impressed,” said Linda.

“The staff are so caring and kind.

“There have been two or three episodes where Mum has needed a lot of additional care while she has been here and they were 100 percent on it.”
