THE last surviving member of Kelty's first triplets celebrated her 90th birthday at the weekend.

Mary Coutts was born on September 13, 1930, along with sisters Susan and Margaret, and on Saturday her family held a small party to celebrate the milestone.

Mary has lived in the village for most of her 90 years. However, she became Mary Myles, with her marriage to a soldier, and spent many years abroad as he served in Singapore and Germany.

Along with her husband, Mary arrived back in Kelty in 1974, and has lived in Centre Street ever since.

The family party was a big surprise for Mary and then on Sunday, at St Joseph's Church in Kelty, she was re-united with her three brothers at the morning service.

Her niece, Elizabeth, said: "It has been quite a weekend for Mary.

"We had hoped to have a garden party to celebrate her 90th but the wind was so strong on Saturday we got driven indoors, although she was really delighted at everyone gathering around her. Then, on Sunday, her three brothers being at the church to wish her a happy 90th was another big surprise."

2020 has been quite a year for Mary, with two great grand-daughters arriving during lockdown!
