Saturday evening, friends and family members enjoyed the festivities of Mrs. Alice Lee Johnson’s 100th year old birthday party at the Fricker Recreational Center.
Approximately 250+ well-wishers enjoyed a sit down meal catered by Mrs. Torrie Jones.
Mrs. Johnson, affectionally called “Nana Niecy” was born November 28, 1916, in Laurel Mississippi. She is the eldest granddaughter of a full blooded Black foot Indian, the eldest daughter of Mrs. Lillie Houston and the sister of Mrs. Thelma Ford.
She is a faithful member of Talbot Chapel AME Zion Church. “I believe in giving my mother her flowers while she can smell them,” said her son, Raymond Reese.
A Proclamation from the Escambia County Commissioners was presented to Mrs. Johnson by County Commissioner Lumon May.
