100 reasons to smile

November 09, 2017

Ida Carter with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

THROUGHOUT her 100 years, Ida Carter has lived a wonderful life surrounded by her adoring family.

To mark the special event on Monday her family gathered in Echuca to celebrate their beloved mum, grandma and great-grandma.

The lively household was filled with laughter and reminiscing of past times spent with the centenarian.

Ida was married to fellow shoe factory worker Laurence Frederick Carter on March 23, 1940.

Throughout her life, Ida has cared immensely for all members of her family and friends. She’s never missed an opportunity to host an event and show-off her great cooking skills.

Laurie and Ida were married for 64 years before Laurie’s death and saw their brood grow to six children, 14 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Today Ida resides at Wharparilla Lodge, which is of course, just a stone’s throw away from some of her family.
