Lillian Dillbeck turns 101 in style
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
Lillian Dillbeck, a resident of Moniteau Care Center, California, celebrated her 101st birthday Friday with family and friends. Other than the obvious fact that Lillian certainly doesn't look a day over 70, there was something unique about the day. Lillian was going to take a ride in a fast car.
It all started when Moniteau Care Center Activities Director Cathy Maddex asked Lillian what her birthday wish was. "She told me she wanted a corvette," Maddex said. "Well, obviously I couldn't arrange that, but she said she would settle for a ride."
So Maddex arranged Lillian's birthday ride, thanks to Putnam's, California, in a fast, convertible camaro.
