Grace Paulsen

Grace Paulsen celebrated her 80th birthday on Tuesday October 20.

Ms Paulsen, from Alicedale, still lives in the same house she grew up in.

Her sister, Cecilia Idas, said Ms Paulsen was the first in their family to reach the age of 80, even though she had a triple bypass operation at the age of 50.

Ms Paulsen has two children and two grandchildren.
