FOR just shy of 100 years, Muriel Vera Adams (Maudie) lived the good life.
She loved her horses, a spot of knitting, crocheting and embroidering, music and an occasional scotch on the rocks.
But always at the centre of her wonderful life was family.
Maudie died peacefully at Regis Aged Care on April 11, 2020, in her 100th year.
She was born in Underbool to Thomas and Elizabeth a'Beckett on June 25, 1920, and was the youngest of nine children. She loved her simple life on the farm, riding her horse Cupie, and collecting many ribbons at local horse shows.
In 1941, she married Richard (Dick) Adams. Their first child Ken was born in 1942, then came along Sherryl in 1947, followed by Laurrine in 1949 and Naree in 1956.
