Well-known Darke Peak resident Olive Davis celebrated her 100th birthday last weekend.

Around 60 of Mrs Davis’s friends and family gathered at the Darke Peak Sporting Complex on the afternoon of September 2 to celebrate the impressive milestone.

Born in Melbourne, Mrs Davis met her husband Gordon during the second World War.

The pair married in Melbourne, before moving to the Eyre Peninsula around the year 1946.

Mrs Davis immediately involved herself in the community through joining the Darke Peak branch of the South Australian Country Women’s Association.

She continues her connection to the SACWA today, and is currently the second longest serving member of the Darke Peak branch.
