Who was Daphne Pearl?

Daphne Pearl, a 95-year-old great-grandmother, enjoyed talking about her youth and describing how the world had changed since then.

Daffy, the youngest of five children, was born in Bundarra, New South Wales, in 1928. She had very modest beginnings, which she wouldn’t trade for anything and often longs for because it was a simpler period.

In 1978, Daffy divorced her husband and moved in with her daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren, including Melissa. After some time, she settled in with Melissa and her children.

Daffy had nothing but adoration and affection for her amazing granddaughter Melissa, who had been looking for her for years, had a beautiful relationship with her, and was extremely close to her.

Melissa started questioning Daffy about her past, her thoughts on current events, and her favorite foods during the epidemic. She eventually realized that her grandmother’s “wise words” ought to be spread throughout the world, so she did. Since then, Daffy, who was then 93 years old, has gained notoriety due to her openness, honesty, and ability to provide us with a glimpse into the past.

In August 2021, Melissa launched Daffy’s Wise Words on Facebook, where she already has 125,000 followers. She joined YouTube so that Daffy may be enjoyed by those who do not use Facebook.

There is no sugarcoating what Daffy, at her age, has to say. She attributes her youth and health to “not drinking or smoking, avoiding bad men, and eating her veggies” — but there is so much more to say, which is why Melissa keeps posting her videos. Melissa is the fortunate beneficiary of Daffy’s love and a can-do attitude; she takes care of the gardening, cooking, laundry, and everything else that needs to be done to keep her busy.

Daffy, who resided close to Cowra, made appearances on Radio 2GB with host Ben Fordham and the national breakfast program Sunrise on Channel Seven last week.
