We are thrilled that Mrs Eileen Welch, 106 years-old, who features in our ‘Grave Tales: Bruce Highway’ book, had the chance to read it!
Eileen pictured with her very handsome husband, Thomas (departed) was five when a cyclone hit Mackay. Eileen lived in George Street, and her family survived, but Thomas, a young boy then, lost his mother, Sarah, and five siblings.
Our story features the Welch family and was prepared with their kind assistance.
Eileen, you amaze us!
