Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen and City Council Members were on hand Dec. 6 to help Doris Johnson celebrate a major milestone – her 100th birthday! The Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels held a party in her honor at the Stafford Congregate Center.
Ms. Johnson was born on Dec. 6, 1911 on a farm near Grinnell, Iowa and later moved to another farm near Swan, Iowa, with her eight siblings. She married in 1939 and had a daughter on Dec. 7, 1942.
She later worked for Farm Bureau Insurance and retired after 25 years. In 2006, Ms. Johnson relocated to Missouri City. She has three grandsons and seven great grandchildren and attends the Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels at the Stafford Congregate Center each weekday.
