Beryl Mayers was the picture of happiness and contentment as she celebrated her 100th birthday yesterday. Mayers’ bubbly personality shone through as she chatted with Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave, laughing occasionally and joining with family, friends and well-wishers as they sang the birthday song. Sitting upright in her St Andrew home, Mayers whose family described her as being in excellent health, appeared healthy and strong. She attributed her health and longevity to having “a good mind” and “giving service to God”. “I feel real good and happy in the love of Jesus,” Mayers said when asked how she felt about reaching the milestone. Mayers, who grew up as a God-fearing person attends the Bawdens United Pentecostal church. She said she gave a special prayer yesterday morning asking for wisdom and understanding and to be happy and prosperous. (LK)
