Fumble. Four generations for Elise Bourdette’s 100th birthday

This Sunday, January 28, Elise Bourdette, a resident of the Condat district, celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by her entire family.

Born in 1924, Elise comes from a family of 3 children (girls) and grew up in Blanquefort-sur-Briolance. In 1942 she married Etienne and from this union Jacques was born in 1946. The first test: the disappearance of her husband Etienne in 1956.

She finds solace in Adrien, whom she marries and becomes Danièle’s “mother of the heart”. This is the beginning of a beautiful blended family story.

His four grandchildren bring him so much happiness: Bruno, Nadia, Nathalie and Céline.

The second test: the disappearance of his son Jacques in 1992.

Today she is a 9x great-grandmother with Coralie, Quentin, Bastien, Jérémy, Mathilde, Fany, Nathan, Clément and Thé. The latest joy: the birth of adorable Alicia in 2023, making her a great-grandmother!

Jean-Louis Costes, mayor of Fumel, accompanied by Josiane Starck, deputy mayor, said a few warm words: “Dear Elise, you have the opportunity to celebrate this birthday surrounded by your whole family. This is proof, s “it was that you are a very beautiful person. Your journey confirms that you have been strong and courageous despite the difficult events that have affected your life. But you always left with generosity and the heart you were given, knows.” A great family celebration!
