Yet another Barbadian is celebrating reaching the coveted milestone of three figures.Today is the big 100th birthday of Anetha Mayfield Husbands, formerly of Prospect, St James, but now resident at the St Judes Nursing Home in Holders Hill in the same parish. Husbands, the mother of two sons, as well as grandmother of nine and great-grandmother of ten, was born in St James on August 11, 1910, and spent most of her life in the Prospect district before moving to the home in recent years.Today is expected to see the continuation of toasting with the sprightly old lady after relatives and friends started the celebrations early last Saturday with a big party at a private residence in Fitts Village.The birthday bash brought together friends and relatives from Barbados, the United States, Bermuda, Canada and London. Member of Parliament for the area, George Hutson, who grew up in Prospect with some of Husbands’ grandchildren, also attended the party for the centenarian.“To reach 100 years is a significant achievement in today’s world, and we want to heartily congratulate Mother Husbands for reaching this treasured milestone. We owe a great debt to our senior citizens like Mother Husbands for paving the way and helping to make Barbados what it is today. May she live to see many more birthdays,” said Hutson, who is also the Minister of International Transport. (PR)
