Thomas had died in 1970. Although, her loss was sad, she refused to give up on love and married Bert Witkiss, a man she was with for 16 years and he died in the late 1980s.

With the joy of enjoying her life with Yates, Witkiss talks about the secret to longevity. She said: "I've had a very good life really, I've enjoyed it, I love meeting people and talking to people. I enjoyed working and going out, I never stopped, I was always on the go. I used to go out dancing with the girls, I liked it, especially if a chap picked you up."

"I don't dance any more because I can't turn and I'm afraid of falling over. But nobody believes me when I tell them I am 100, they think I'm joking.I don't feel 100 though, that's the main thing."
