On Monday, April 9, the Southlake Senior Activity Center celebrated longtime member Millie Stuck’s 103rd birthday with a special luncheon.
Born April 8, 1915, on a farm in Mills County, Texas, Millie graduated from Goldthwaite High School in 1933. She married Bill Stuck in Kerrville on June 4, 1939, and the couple moved to Fort Worth in 1944 after a failed crop on their farm. During World War II, both Millie and her husband went to work for what is now Lockheed Martin building the experimental B-36 Peacemaker. As the war came to an end, Millie went to work as a dental assistant, spending the next 35 years with the same dentist in Fort Worth.
Millie has a history of celebrating landmark birthdays in style: she celebrated her 80th birthday at Keukenhof Gardens in Holland while on a three-week European vacation, her 95th birthday on an Alaskan cruise and her 100th birthday at the Southlake Senior Activity Center in 2015. On Monday, April 9, 2018, the Senior Center was happy to help Millie continue the tradition with a special birthday luncheon filled with family and friends.
Millie has two children, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She continues to be very active in her community, volunteering and attending numerous activities with the Senior Center and White’s Chapel UMC since moving to Colleyville 14 years ago.
