On June 14, Josephine Reremoana Kupa (née Russell), sole surviving child of William Alexander Russell and Louisa Violet Russell (née Barrett), celebrated her 100th birthday – a significant milestone for Josephine. She is in care at Princess Alexandra in Napier. There had already been one other 100th year celebration this year – Gallipoli, so mum was in excellent company.
