Party like you’re 99

Oak Bay Lawn Bowling Club honours its oldest member

Oak Bay Lawn Bowling Club celebrates Shirley Tucker’s 99th birthday.

Oak Bay lawn bowlers love a good party and recently honoured their oldest member, 99-year-old Shirley Tucker.

About 70 club members gathered at the clubhouse May 8 for tea and birthday cake to celebrate Tucker, a 32-year member of the organization.

Tucker graduated from Victoria High School before attending Victoria College when it was at Craigdarroch Castle. She received degrees from the University of Washington and Columbia University. After retiring from teaching in 1981, Tucker returned to Victoria and joined the Oak Bay Lawn Bowling Club in 1984.

Tucker continued to bowl into her 90s and still plays bridge at the club weekly.
