Tuesday Vivian "Millie" Bailey celebrated her 100th birthday.

The surprise party for Bailey happened at Mission BBQ in Columbia.

Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford stopped by to celebrate and have some cake with Bailey.

"It was a big surprise,” said Bailey. “I had no idea this was taking place."

Bailey was a World War II veteran in the women's Army Corp.

Bailey will officially turn 100 on Saturday.

Happy Birthday, Millie!
