Life lessons from 100 year old Bearsden teacher


A much-loved woman living in Bearsden has celebrated her 100th birthday.

Centenarian Marjorie Ada Chahin, better known as Margot, celebrated her 100th birthday at Antonine House Care Home.

A former teacher, Margot’s lessons haven’t stopped yet as she shares some life wisdom which has never been more important: “Always find the positives in life and think about others before yourself.”

Now living in Antonine House care home, part of the Meallmore group, Margot turned 100 on 10 December 2020. On her milestone birthday Margot was spoilt by her family with banners and a photo album of her life. Cards from well-wishers were also received, including one from the Queen.

To make her birthday as special as possible, staff at Antonine House arranged for their chefs to bake Margot a total of three cakes to spell out ‘100’.

Amanda King, care home manager said: “It was a privilege to celebrate such a milestone birthday with Margot.  Our residents and staff had a wonderful time celebrating, and it was great to see the joy on Margot’s face. It was a really special day.”
