Mrs Kelly was the fourth of seven children in her family.
Registered on July 5 Mrs Kelly had always celebrated her birthdays on that date.
It wasnt until the 1970s that she discovered she had actually been born two days earlier, on July 3.
This year, she celebrated both days. On Sunday she celebrated with relatives, and on Tuesday with a party at her aged care facility.
Mrs Kelly remembers Eaglehawk of the 1920s and 30s as a quiet town, more separate from Bendigo than it is today.
She began school at what was then called Sailors Gully School, before attending Primary School number 210 in Eaglehawk.
It was a very quiet place, she said.
It wasnt much happened around the town. We didnt have a lot of larrikins I didnt think, not in those days.
At 14, Mrs Kelly finished school, and worked in a range of jobs.
She married aged 20, and had a son Graeme Kirkwood.
As an only child, Mr Kirkwood remembers her as a wonderful mother.
She was a good mother, I always good well looked after, he said.
When I was the only child, I was spoilt everybody tells me.
Mrs Kelly has lived active life, with a particular love of bowls.
She began to play in her late 40s, and discovered a talent.
She took home the Club Champion 14 times, and even Victorian State Champion.
In the 1980s, when she won the state title, she was chosen to play for Victoria.
To do so, she had to travel to South Australia, her first time on a plane.
Mrs Kelly never thought shed make it to 100, but shes not the first in her family to do so.
Her brother Harold Toma turned 100 in 2016, he still lives at home in Eaglehawk. One sister also made the milestone.
I just keep going each day and each day, and youre getting closer and closer to the 100, she said.
Ms Kelly attributes her familys longevity to a healthy, busy lifestyle.
Its just one of those things, we didnt eat a lot of junk food and weve lived a good life the lot of us, she said.
We had a good life, we enjoyed ourselves.
