Celebrating 99 Years: Lucille Haney

Lucille Haney celebrated her 99th birthday at Dogwood Trails Assisted Living facility in Palestine on Aug. 13.

Ms. Haney was born at home in Palestine in 1921 as the 10th child to a German family.

She is a spunky, funny lady who has been a member of the Eastern Star organization for more than 50 years.

She didn't want any "hulabaloo" in regards to her birthday but we still showered her with love and her favorite drink, a margarita!

According to Caycie Collins, the Executive Director at Dogwood Trails, Haney laughed and said, ‘I didn't expect a party until next year. I guess that means you don't think I'm gonna make it.’

“Her sense of humor keeps us on our toes,” said Collins. “I'd like to add that Ms. Haney doesn’t take any medications and is still very sharp minded with a great attitude. There is something to be said about that!
